Listen to the latest episode from Michigan's own Rustbelt Abolition Radio!
"In this episode we explore the parallel ways in which the
institutions of prisons and schools work to reproduce our current
society, racial capitalism, as well as the challenges and possibilities
we face in its transformation. Imprisoned intellectual Harold “HH” Gonzales
tells us about the history of school segregation and the construction
of the so-called school to prison pipeline. We also hear from Erica Meiners,
who discusses how schools are embedded in carceral regimes, and
encourages us to view them through the wider lens of abolitionist
struggle. We conclude the episode with imprisoned artist Steven Hibbler, on how the policing and criminalization of Black and Brown youth prefigure the racist carceral logic of our society."
