George Jackson Reading Group!


JacksonJoin Nola to Angola on August 8th as we host our second discussion group! This time we’ll be reading and discussing excerpts from “Soledad Brother” by George Jackson. We’ll be reading pages 3-33 which you can find online here: http://historyisaweapon.com/defcon1/soledadbro.html

ALL are welcome, regardless of prior knowledge! This is meant to be a safe, critical, friendly discussion about historic and current prison issues. New Orleans is the prison capital of the world; what does this mean for us in our lives? We especially want to reach out for folks who are new to learning about prisons or prison organizing.

Come at 5:30 to meet with NTA folks or do the reading (we’ll have extra copies there). The discussion will start promptly at 6:15! This event will take place at the Community Book Center, 2523 Bayou Road. See you there!
