My name is Mika'il DeVeaux and I am a doctoral student at the Graduate Center of CUNY and The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. I am writing to ask if you would be willing to aid me in my research designed to understand the experiences of African American men who have been incarcerated in New York State, who have completed their sentences and have been out of prison for at least three years by agreeing to an interview (if you are an African American man), or by asking a person who meets these criteria who may be willing to talk about his experiences to contact me. Participation is completely voluntary and the context of our interview will be kept confidential.

If you are interested, and wish to determine if you are eligible to participate please send me an email at expressing your interest or give me a call at 347.626.7233, ext. 1. If you have any additional questions or need additional information before participating do not hesitate to contact me."
