The Claremont Forum is proud to host a special screening of the PBS Frontline documentary Solitary Nation on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

A discussion of prison life and conditions with former “lifer” Steve Bell will follow.

An estimated 80,000 Americans are in solitary confinement-even people who haven’t committed violent crimes. Using extraordinary access to the segregation unit at the maximum-security Maine State Prison, Frontline examines America’s use of solitary confinement.

An extraordinarily rare and intimate view of life in solitary, through the stories of inmates living in isolation and the prison officers who keep them locked in.
