Description:
One night Crishaun Reed “CeCe” McDonald was viciously attacked. In defending herself, a man was killed. After a coercive interrogation, CeCe was incarcerated in a men’s prison. An international campaign to free her followed and garnered significant support from media and activists, including actress and executive producer Laverne Cox, who uses her platform to explore the roles race, class, and gender played in CeCe’s case. CeCe emerges not only as a survivor, but as a leader and highlights the way CeCe and other trans people are leading a growing movement to critically interrogate and disassemble the prison industrial complex.
