In The Nation, Sylvia Harvey explains how kids with parents in prison are gradually losing their visitation rights. And those changes impact a whole lot of kids: “Over 2.7 million children in the United States had an incarcerated parent. That’s one in 28 kids, compared with one in 125 about 30 years ago. For black children, the odds were much worse: While one out of every 57 white children had an incarcerated parent, one out of every nine black children had a parent behind bars.”
