Advocates, inmates memorialize ‘overlooked’ lives lost to coronavirus behind bars

Caroline Harlow, who studied criminology at the University of California, Irvine and plans to start law school next year, wanted a grander legacy for Anthony Blue, who spent four decades behind bars for a murder conviction. She wrote a memorial for Mourning Our Losses, a website created by advocates and people in prison to celebrate lives uncelebrated during an unforgiving pandemic that has been disproportionately deadly behind bars.
