Published Jimmy - Fri, 09/01/2017 - 7:30pm

Scholar, activist, and former CMC volunteer Dan Berger returns to Gainesville for a talk sponsored by Fight Toxic Prisons.

Berger is the author of two books on the politics of prisons: "The Struggle Within: Prisons, Political Prisoners, and Mass Movements in the United States" and "Captive Nation: Black Prison Organizing in the Civil Rights Era."

He will join a panel of former prisoners to talk about the history and current situation of prisons, the effects of mass incarceration, and the possibilities for radical change to the system.
