This is Tariq MaQbool, an incarcerated writer/journalist and the creator of CAPTIVEVOICES.COM.
Welcome to our family!
I created this forum to provide an avenue for the incarcerated men/women to speak our truth, to tell our stories, and to define our own narratives. I truly believe that without our voices and that of our loved ones, we will continue to be marginalized and our plight will remain without redress. In sum, to make real, structural changes to the broken American Judicial/Prison system, we must speak up!
