Does The Apple Fall Far From Prison? | Bahiyyah Muhammad | TEDxHowardUniversity



Does the Apple Fall Far From Prison? is a conversation about the stigmas placed on the children of incarcerated parents and how they are triumphant despite the social and political odds. Dr. Bahiyyah Muhammad is a professor of Criminology at Howard University whose research primarily focuses on the consequences of parental incarceration on children. Dr. Muhammad’s research has led her to conducting interviews with affected children and parents worldwide. She has spoken extensively on various national platforms and continues to share her expertise with both federal and state organizations. Dr. Muhammad is the founding director of the innovative Policing Inside-Out course, offered exclusively at Howard University, which addresses questions on race relations with minority communities and law enforcement. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
