The Prison Fix

October 19, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Free

The focus of this class will be the mass incarceration system, which took off in the United States in the 1970s and is directly related to the emerging Black freedom struggle. At a time when Black labor was made superfluous to the economics of an emerging global neo-liberal system, and when Black demands for justice found expression in urban uprising, the prison system became a way to house and contain a potentially revolutionary class. Our discussion will center on the exploration of that issue and its consequences.
