Following the work of Michelle Alexander, Kevin Medina and Brian Nguyen’s “Acknowledged but Ignored: A Critical Race Theory Approach to the Prison Rape Elimination Act,” address the overrepresentation of incarcerated men of color, speci cally African American men. Medina and Nguyen highlight the ways in which racism and homophobia reproduce rape culture in prisons and demonstrate the limitations of the Prison Rape Elimination Act.
