Marshall Project writers Maurice Chammah and Christie Thompson and editor Tom Meagher have curated a playlist of the best hip-hop, country, blues, and other music by men and women who have served time, performed in prisons, or otherwise tried to capture the American way of crime and punishment in song.
For $50 we'll send you a copy of the book that transformed how America thinks about criminal justice (and also inspired the creation of The Marshall Project). We will also add your name to our honor roll, give you access to our playlist and tucked inside your book will be a note of thanks from TMP staff.
Donate $100 or more and we'll transform you into a TMP reporter. You'll receive one of our special TMP reporter's notebooks, a unique TMP pencil, and we'll add your name to our honor roll, and give you access to our special "prison" playlist.
The Devil in the Grove is the Pulitzer Prize-winning book about lawyer and civil rights crusader Thurgood Marshall (for whom we are named), and his courageous defense of the "Groveland boys." It's a gripping and illuminating history, and author Gilbert King will personally inscribe your copy.
Join us for our morning editorial meeting, weigh in on the day's criminal justice news and learn about our upcoming stories. Then meet the talented editors behind Life Inside before joining our reporters for an informal lunch. You can either come in person, or join us virtually via Google or Skype.
