Black August - Then and Now: Historical Origins and Current Relevance

Sunday August 22, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

After the widely televised death of George Floyd, the world was awakened to how wrong encounters with law enforcement can go. During the late sixties and early seventies, similar attention was brought to murderous encounters in the United States prison system. Names like Jonathan and George Jackson, Angela Davis, Attica, Soledad, Counterintelligence Program, and San Quentin Prison captured the attention of activists of the day, leading to a vibrant movement for prison condition reform. Out of that movement came the creation of “Black August.” Our “Black August – Then and Now” program will inform local Trenton residents and our not-so-local friends and guests about this movement of resistance to oppression and demand for prison/criminal justice reform.
