Sociocultural Programming and Urban Studies invite UWM students, scholars, and activists to join us as we host University of Michigan Professor and Historian Heather Ann Thompson, whose book “Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy” was awarded the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in History. Thompson will speak about the crisis of race and mass incarceration in the U.S. today and the importance of campus activism for dismantling the prison industrial complex. A Community Resource Fair and panel discussion with local activists will help motivate and mobilize students to get involved right here in Milwaukee.
