April 11th marks the 23rd anniversary of the Lucasville Prison Uprising, the longest prison rebellion in U.S. history. Dozens of prisoners like Keith LaMar were given harsh sentences, including death, or life in prison, in the massive wave of state repression that followed. What happened at Lucasville was the result of a rapidly expanding prison-industrial complex which has seen the construction of Maximum Security facilities, the enormous expansion of the inmate population and overcrowding, and the deterioration of conditions on the inside.
Join us for a conversation with Ohio Death Row inmate Keith LaMar on the structural causes and consequences of the U.S. prison system.
