Visualizing Abolition with adrienne maree brown and Gilda Sheppard
Visualizing Abolition continues with a conversation between author adrienne maree brown and Gilda Sheppard, director of the recent documentary, Since I Been Down.
Since I Been Down is a profound and revealing film investigating the circumstances and inequities that have landed a whole generation of African-American youth in prison. In a wide-ranging conversation about filmmaking and abolition, brown and Sheppard will engage the critical questions the film raises about how to build trust, restore and repair lives devastated by the U.S. criminal legal system.
Registration to this event also include limited access to an online screening of the award-winning Since I Been Down. WATCH HERE between October 21-28.
Visualizing Abolition is organized by Professor Gina Dent, Feminist Studies and Dr. Rachel Nelson, Director, Institute of the Arts and Sciences. The events feature artists, activists, and scholars united by their commitment to the vital struggle for prison abolition.
