Baltimore, mass incarceration, and the Black Guerilla Family: 

Black Women as protectors and providers 




After the killing of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, MD, the Department of Justice investigated the Baltimore City Police Department and found widespread civil liberties violations. The civil liberties violations and race-based policing disparities in Black neighborhoods contributed to mass incarceration. The disparities also played a part in transforming gender roles for Black men and women in the city. As more Black men acquired criminal records, Black women took on the roles of protectors and providers. Specifically, in the wake of mass incarceration, more Black women became correctional officers at Baltimore City jails and correctional facilities assuming roles as protectors and providers. I use the work of scholars Angela Davis and Alex Vitale to analyze research interviews collected from two studies about the Baltimore Uprising of 2015. Davis’s and Vitale’s theoretical frameworks provide a lens through which we can better understand the intended and unintended harms of the Criminal Legal Systems’ impact on gender roles in Black Baltimore.
