Keeonna Harris is a feminist, activist, mother, and doctoral student whose work examines the effects of mass incarceration on mothering, for Black women. Her research focuses on how mothering happens in different spaces and how mothers navigate the prison system while advocating for themselves and their families. Keeonna uses interviews, storytelling, and personal experiences to explore the connections between Black womanhood, mothering, and mass incarceration. Beyond research, Keeonna emphasizes mothering in movements for justice as a tool for organizing, and as a deeply rooted connection between women, families and communities facing similar circumstances. Keeonna is committed to community and is currently working to build a support and advocacy network for mothers and children who have incarcerated partners and parents.
