V/A - Prisons On Fire : George Jackson, Attica & Black Liberation
virus275 (2002) CD - $12.00

30 years ago America's prisons burned. Here's how, why, and what happened. Who were the Attica Brothers? Why did they seize control of the prison? And who was George Jackson? And why was he murdered by the prison administration? And what do these forgotten histories tell us about prisons, repression, and the struggle for freedom today? Now, through archive audio, music and interviews, the voices of the Attica Brothers, Jonathan Jackson Jr., Angela Davis, Amiri Baraka, James Baldwin, Harry Belafonte, former Black Panther Chief Of Staff David Hilliard and more, introduce and grapple with this legacy.

Author Bio:
The Freedom Archives contain over 5000 hours of audiotape recordings, documenting, as it happened, the most turbulent times, events, and movements, from the early 60s to the mid-1990s. From People's Park to Attica. Vietnam to Puerto Rico. Wounded Knee to Mumia Abu-Jamal. Paul Robeson to Pete Seeger.

Anthology Contributors:
Frank 'Big Black' Smith, Charles Barkley, Elizabeth Fink and Michael Deutsch, Angela Davis,David Hilliard, Ruchell Magee, Harry Belafonte, James Baldwin, Jonathan Jackson Jr, Georgia Jackson, etc

Notes Of Interest :
End of 2001 was the 30th year anniversary both of Attica and the murder of George Jackson...
This is all original audio material, a lot of it heard for the first time.
Anti-prison movement is at an all time high, with incarceration rates soaring, and a general acceptance now that prisons and the "War Against Drugs" are part of the social control used against people of color.
