As reported in in May, Big House Books based in Mississippi sued MS DOC for banning donated/free books from coming into MS prisons. We found out this week that they WON their lawsuit!
This is great news for everyone and MS and beyond! And given similar wins at the federal level and right here in NC, it's safe to say that prison administrators are on notice that messing with incarcerated people's access to books is NOT GOING TO FLY.
As always, there is more work to do--but today, we celebrate and heartily congratulate Big House Books for this win!!
