Dr. Toussaint Losier, Assistant Professor in African Americans and the Law at the W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies at University of Massachusetts-Amherst, presents a 35mm slide show created in the late 1970s to raise consciousness and support for the Pontiac Brothers, and discusses the reaction of the state of Illinois, which prosecuted 17 of the incarcerated men for murder. We will examine how the Pontiac and Stateville prison revolts reverberate through organizing into the present day.
Initially publicized as Thursday, October 30th, Interference Archive is pleased to announce that this presentation of the Pontiac Brothers Slideshow will take place on Sunday, November 9th.
