  • Mass Incarceration and COVID19... A Death Sentence Waiting to Happen

  • May 11, 2020 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm
  • Location: Revolution Books NYC on FACEBOOK Live
  • Description:

    Watch here Monday at 7 pm EDT. (You don't need Facebook account to watch.)

    Books on mass incarceration, as well as pandemic crises, are available at Revolution Books new online store here. Select from 6000+ titles in RB's curated collection.


    The U.S., with more than 2 million people locked down in its prisons and immigrant detention camps, leads the world in incarcerating its people. It has more people in prison, and the largest percentage of its population in prison, than any country in the world today-- larger than any country in the history of the world.

    More than 60 percent of these more than 2 million people are Black or Latino, and they are being forced to face the deadly coronavirus without consistent access to soap and water, without masks, with no ability to do “social distancing.”

    This literally means that the sentences that have them locked in this country's dungeons can become death sentences, and in fact have already become death sentences for hundreds of incarcerated people.

  • Location: Brooklyn Historical Society, Brooklyn, NY
  • Description:

    March is Women's History Month. The history of incarcerating girls is fraught with race and gender bias. Labeled “delinquent,” “incorrigible,” and “immoral,” early , criminalized girls for disobedience and resistance to strict gender norms. This legacy lives on today, especially for girls of color. However, the possibility of ending girls’ incarceration in ten years is tangible. 

    Join us for a conversation with Lindsay Rosenthal, Project Director of Vera’s Initiative to End Girls’ Incarceration; Dr. Sydney McKinney, Executive Director of National Black Women’s Justice Institute; Dr. Shabnam Javdani, Associate Professor of Applied Pyschology at NYU; Dr. Cheryl D.
