“The House We Live In” is a new documentary about the War on Drugs, a social experiment during which millions of people have been incarcerated for minor and major drug offenses. The sentences have been long and dramatic, and there is no community that has been hit harder by this war than that of black America.
One of the things that we discuss in our Building Oustanding Men and Boys (BOMB) family empowerment series is that we must all confront what the War on Drugs and a distorted criminal justice system has done to the black family in America. Fathers have been taken away from their children, leaving women without husbands and kids with half of the parental guidance and protection that they would have had before.
