Jeanine Elam, 41, at the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln, Illinois, on Oct. 26, 2021. “Never have we been allowed to let the world see us speak,” said Elam, the director of the performance. “Just the point of being able to show that we are women. Not monsters, not convicts. That we are human beings.” (Armando L. Sanchez / Chicago Tribune)
