How does having a parent in prison impact children? And how does being separated from those children affect incarcerated parents?

Farai Chideya speaks with Nell Bernstein, author of All Alone in the World: Children of the Incarcerated and coordinator for San Francisco Children of Incarcerated Parents.

We also hear from Kara Gostch, advocacy director at the Sentencing Project, which focuses on criminal justice policy.
