What is the legacy of the prison movement? And what do these forgotten histories tell us about prisons, repression, and the struggle for freedom today? This unique compilation brings us the voices of George Jackson, Jonathan Jackson Jr.- Georgia Jackson (mother of George and Jonathan)- Angela Davis- David Hilliard (former Black Panther Party leader)- James Baldwin- Harry Belafonte- David Johnson, Hugo Pinell, Luis Talamantez and Sundiata Tate (all charged with the San Quentin rebellion following the killing of George Jackson)- Frank Big Black Smith (Attica Brother and prison activist)- William Kunstler- Elizabeth Fink and Michael Deutsch (attorneys for the Attica brothers)- L. D. Barkley (Attica Brother, murdered in the retaking of the prison on September 10, 1971, who announced the Attica Manifesto to the world)- and Ruchell Magee (prison activist and leader, still in prison for his political activities).
