b&b51 From Slavery to Prisons: A History | The PIC Series, Part 2
Last week, Dyalekt summed up the prison industrial complex in one word: Slavery. 2.3 million Americans are in prison today and 60% of them are people of color.
This week, we have special guest Stephanie Damon-Moore, a law student at NYU who has dedicated her studies to abolishing the prison system, join us on the show to tell us exactly how close the ties to slavery really are. We go through the damaging stereotypes that were never addressed when slavery was abolished, the wins and losses in the Civil Rights Movements, and where we are today.
Catch her on the regular at abolishprisons.org.
