April 17, 2019, at 7pm on CFRC 101.9fm’s Prison Radio program:
We start the show with the first in what we hope is a monthly segment featuring Jimmy and Donny Hogan, commenting on historic and contemporary problems in Canadian corrections.
Then starting at 7:25 we will broadcast most of the talk given by Joy James on March 18, 2019, at Queen’s University. The talk, ‘The Architects of Contemporary Abolitionism,’ explores the political theories and activism of George Jackson and Angela Davis, the origins and impact of abolitionist critiques of policing and mass incarceration in the 20th century…and the pragmatic contributions and contradictions of contemporary prison reform, abolitionism and revolutionary politics in the US.
This event was part of Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship Series, and co-organized by the Cultural Studies at Queen’s University Graduate Programme, the Department of Gender Studies and the Department of Philosophy.
