Friday Roundup

with 3 comments

Not many links have come across the transom this week, but to take you into the weekend:

  • Heather Ann Thompson reflects on Attica, 40 years later.
  • Doug Berman asks if prison-friendly cell phones would be a good idea.
  • If you’re in or near NYC, visit Think Outside the Cell to register for their free symposium on issues affecting those who are incarcerated and their families, scheduled for September 24 at Riverside Church, and featuring Newark mayor Cory Booker, criminal justice scholars Jeremy Travis and Michelle Alexander, and others.
