Abstract

In a national study released in 2007 by The Sentencing Project, Iowa tops the nation for imprisoning African Americans at a rate of 13.6 times that of whites. In addition, African Americans in Iowa are much more likely to be unemployed, lacking a high school diploma, and earning less than white Iowans. And African American offenders’ return-to-prison rates are higher than for white offenders.
