Nancy Kurshan and Out of Control in San Francisco
We are excited to announce an evening with author and activist Nancy
*Thursday May 9th at 7pm - 518 Valencia St - San Francisco*
Nancy and the Freedom Archives have recently released /*Out of Control:
A Fifteen Year Battle Against Control Unit Prisons.*/ The book tells the
inspiring story of the Committee to End the Marion Lockdown (CEML).
Founded in 1985 to organize against control unit prisons and related
inhumane practices at the notorious federal prison in Marion, Illinois,
the committee's work and influence spread nationwide, even as the
practices at Marion became widespread in many other prisons in the U.S.
Written in a very accessible and eloquent style by Nancy Kurshan, a CEML
co-founder and leading activist throughout its history, the book
recounts how the committee led and organized hundreds of educational
programs and demonstrations in many parts of the country and sought to
build a national movement to expose and abolish "end-of-the-line" prisons.
You can read an briefer online version of the book here
audio, video and links to documents. You can also check out our new
which features 300+ digitized documents, audio, and video from CEML's
history of prison advocacy. See praise for Out of Control below and
please join us for this exciting event.
