Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. CD. Thirty years ago, America's prisons burned. This 60-minute CD seeks to answer a multitude of questions: How and why did this happen? Who were the Attica brothers? The Soledad Brothers? Why did 1,500 Black, Puerto Rican, and white prisoners seize control of the New York prison? What is the legacy of the prison movement and what do these forgotten histories tell us about prison, repression, and the struggle for freedom today? Through a mixture of archive audio and contemporary interviews, music, and narration by Harry Belafonte, Angela Davis, George Jackson, James Baldwin and more, this in-depth recording introduces and grapples with this history, and its lessons for today and tomorrow.
