This will be the second session of a class on Prisons, Prison Abolition, and the new Jim Crow [Wed. Dec. 10, 7 pm]
This second session of this class will address issues concerning how to approach the question and the practice of abolishing the prison system.
--- what aspects of the prison system can be eliminated right now, in the interest of taking steps toward instituting justice in this country?
--- what are the weak points in the structure of imprisonment and mass incarceration that we face, so that we can attack it there?
--- should we look at the police today as an extension of the prison system, or the prison system as an extension of the police, or both, and what does it mean that this question makes sense in this country today?
--- what relation does this police-prison nexus have toward the continual unfolding of structures of racialization today.
