Latest Podcast: Prisons, Prison Reformers, and Civil Rights Movements in Greenwich Village

Check out our latest podcast, which looks at two notorious prisons in Greenwich Village (one of which was New York’s first, and the source of the phrase “sent up the river”); two Greenwich Village prison reformers who played a key role in the Attica Uprising of 1971 which led to profound changes in our prison systems; and the intersection between these places of mass incarceration and the civil rights struggles of African Americans, LGBT people, and women.

This is our seventh podcast – check them all out here. Check out our entire SoundCloud collection here.
