Roach Brown: Founder of Lorton Inner Voices Project

Rhozier “Roach” Brown, seek well known WPFW radio personality, viagra 60mg ex-Lorton convict, and founder of The Inner Voices will speak at the Workhouse Arts Center. Roach Brown founded the nationally acclaimed prison theatrical troupe The Inner Voices in 1971 while serving a life sentence at Lorton. The group performed outside the gates of the prison for more than one thousand times without an escape or incident. The Inner Voices presented original plays, skits and social dramas about prison life.

About the Workhouse Prison Museum:

The Workhouse Prison Museum opened to the public in 2009 and is entirely supported by private contributions.  It is located in Building W-9 at the Workhouse Arts Center.  The Museum was created to present an overview of some of the interesting and significant events that took place at the District of Columbia’s Correctional Complex at Lorton from its opening in 1910 until the last prison left in 2001.  Your support for the museum is appreciated.
