Ibrahim Moss will review Michelle Alexander's “New Jim Crow”, which raises the question of "societal permits" that allow slavery to persist in the US to these times. These "permits" are played out on defenseless populations: the poor and politically weak minorities. They may also manifest themselves in a broader context of economic exploitation, racism, sexism, and other things.

Urszula Wislanka, supporter of last year's Pelican Bay Hunger Strike among prisoners which drew attention to solitary confinement in California, will speak on the prisoner's fight to hold onto their humanity in the midst of the most inhuman environment yet designed.
