Attica Prison Uprising - 50th Anniversary

50 years ago, inmates in Attica, a maximum-security prison in upstate NY, held an uprising to protest dehumanizing prison conditions. A bloody crackdown by state police left 39 dead. Attica paved the way for the modern anti-prison movement. Today we are joined by Tyrone Larkins, one of the Attica survivors and Soffiyah Elijah, Executive Director of Alliance of Families for Justice, a group that is working to change the landscape of injustice in American courts and prisons.
