What Do 800-Year-Old Magna Carta & Black Lives Matter Have in Common? A People’s Historian Explains: Peter Linebaugh on Demo


"The Magna Carta turns 800 years old today (June 15th, 2015). Known as the "Great Charter," it is widely considered the foundation of parliamentary democracy, human rights and the supremacy of the law over the crown. As dignitaries including the queen of England and Prime Minister David Cameron commemorate the sealing of the historic text, we go to Lincoln Castle in England, where the finest originals of the Magna Carta and the charters of English liberty are kept in a lockstone vault, and speak with people’s historian Peter Linebaugh, author of The Magna Carta Manifesto: Liberty and Subsistence for All. He is attending the event to draw connections between the Magna Carta and the Black Lives Matter movement."—Democracy Now!

Robert H King on Democracy Now! Talking about the pending release of Albert Woodfox


"Louisiana has delayed the release of former Black Panther Albert Woodfox, the longest-serving U.S. prisoner in solitary confinement, after appealing a judge’s order for his freedom. Earlier this year a Louisiana grand jury re-indicted Woodfox for the 1972 murder of a prison guard, a crime for which he and his late, fellow Angola 3 member Herman Wallace maintained they were framed for their political activism. Wallace died on October 1, 2013 just three days after he was released from prison..."—Juan González, Democracy Now!

Vikki Law & Dan Berger: Conversations in Black Freedom Studies Panel

 

 

"From Ferguson to Staten Island, the #blacklivesmatter campaign has put the treatment of Black people in the criminal justice system front and center in public conversation. Police brutality and the unequal treatment of Black people in the criminal justice system have a long history in the United States; as do campaigns to challenge it. Join us for an exciting two-month conversation where we explore this bigger history of mass incarceration; the racial inequalities of policing, prosecution and sentencing; the long history of political prisoners; and the campaigns of resistance built by black communities and prisoners themselves from the civil rights era to today. We are joined by six authors of important books that are must-reads for people interested in the long history of racial inequality and Black resistance in the criminal justice system: Bryan Stevenson; Dan Berger, Vikki Law; Ruth Wilson Gilmore; Laura Whitehorn and Arun Kundnani."
