Interview with Geraldine Tucker


Alexa Garza interviews Geri Tucker (Geraldine Swain) about her 32 years of time served in prison in Texas, focusing on the day-to-day realities of prison life. Alexa and Geri were friends in the same prison and have shared experiences together. Examples are given of how interactions commonplace outside of prison are viewed as misconduct inside. Also notable is Tucker's legal action against the prison, resulting in a ban on male prison guards strip-searching incarcerated women or being in areas where they are undressed.
