“The Attica Prison Uprising and Why it Matters Today”
In 1971 nearly 1,300 prisoners began one of the 20th century's most important protests for better conditions and basic human rights. Their struggle was ended brutally by the state of New York with vast consequences for criminal justice policy in this country. Dr. Thompson spent more than a decade recovering this history for her book Blood in the Water. It is a story of hope, horror, heroism, and even a most shocking cover up. In this talk, Dr. Thompson will share Attica's history as well as explain why this history matters today. Free - no tickets required
