Oct 21, NYC: On the Road to Abolition: Archiving Resistance to the Carceral State

October 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

On the Road to Abolition: Archiving Resistance to the Carceral State

Simon Balto and Emily Thuma, moderated by Mariame Kaba

Oct 21, 2019 | 6:30pm
Conversation
Event Oval, The Diana Center, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027

Emily Thuma and Simon Balto, in conversation with Mariame Kaba, will discuss histories of resistance to prisons and policing. Thuma’s work covers radical newsletters that cut across prison walls, abolitionist fights for prisoners’ and psychiatric patients’ rights, and defense campaigns to free survivors of sexual and gender violence, while Balto’s examines black Communists’ rejections of police enforcement of Depression-era austerity politics, and the Black Power-era fight for community control of the police, among other related issues. Together these histories offer roadmaps and lessons for contemporary struggles.
