This documentary was designed as a teaching tool to expand knowledge about the history of the prison industrial complex and the prison abolition movement in the United States.

Break: 5 minutes

Part II “Abolition: Past, Present & Future” moves beyond criticism, and offers an example of prison abolition in practice (48 mins).

This film features Angela Y. Davis, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Susan Burton, Melissa Burch, Dylan Rodriguez, and Andrea Smith.

There will be a discussion following the screening.
