Add comment on:Opening the Box: Sarah Shourd on Herman Wallace, California Hunger Strikers, and more
Angola 3 News
Solitary survivor Sarah Shourd, of Oakland, California, is beginning work on a new play designed to present the voices of solitary confinement's targets. In this interview, which Shourd dedicates to Herman Wallace of the Angola 3, recently transferred out of solitary confinement, we take a closer look at her project, Opening the Box, as well as the ongoing prisoner hunger strike in California, the Angola 3 case, and the politics of prisons in the US. "By hearing these stories, my hope is that the audience will be able to relate to the men and women enduring this torture in our prisons, to their pain but also to their resistance to the dehumanizing forces around them, their incredible resilience...and their refusal to be institutionalized,” says Shourd.
