women of color blog: the institution of prison is haunted by slavery

There’s a youtube video about the Angola 3 that looks interesting that was posted on the Women of Color Blog. I haven’t had the chance to watch it yet.

The blogger draws the relationship between slavery and the prison system, which was an argument made by Vivianne in her excellent talk at this past summer’s Plan-It-X Fest workshop.  This image that was posted is pretty telling.
