of mass incarceration accessible through comics. With a two-decade 
sweep, Let Freedom Ring chronicles the essays, analyses, histories, 
interviews, resolutions, People's Tribunals verdicts, and poems by 
and about the scores of U.S. political prisoners and the campaigns to 
safeguard their rights and to secure their freedom. Longtime

author Ruth Wilson Gilmore join the discussion.
