ANGELA DAVIS ON PRISONS
Democracy Now (10-19-10) Amy Goodman interviewed Angela Davis for most of the hour, much of it about Davis’s experience with, views about, and advocacy of abolishing prisons. Prisons reflect a failed society. A genuinely caring society would largely eliminate prisons, as in Finland. Prison abolition is part of “building a new world,” as in the UN's phrase, A Culture of Peace.
Ms. Davis referred to the book Instead of Prisons. Here's information about it:
