City of Inmates
Historian Kelly Lytle Hernández brings us the lengthy history of how authorities in Los Angeles have used imprisonment as a tool to control both labor and migration. City of Inmates takes the reader from a brief look at the Tongva Communities in the Tongva Basin, to the Spanish colonial era of the late 18th century, and through the Watts Rebellion in 1965. “This book recounts how the dynamics of conquest met deep reservoirs of rebellion as Los Angeles became the City of Inmates, the nation’s carceral core.” Our discussion delves into this painstaking history of incarceration, resistance, and rebellion in the changing city. Featuring host Jeffery Jenkins (@jaj7d ), and guests Robynn Cox (@RobynnCox ), David Sloane (@dcsloane53 ), and Danielle Williams (@BDanielleW) @BedrosianCenter For links and more check out the showpage.
