A whole evening of creative works and dialogue about the prison industrial complex our nation has been building since the beginning.
7:00- THE SHADOW OF LUCASVILLE
Follow-up to the award winning documentary film, The Great Incarcerator, part 1: Dark Little Secret Directed by D Jones - 60 minutes + call from Death Row
The Shadow of Lucasville revisits the 1993 uprising at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, one of the longest in U.S. history, while exploring the fight for human rights and media exposure through inmate uprisings in response to mass incarceration and dehumanization supported by the prison industrial complex. The film will be followed by conversation with death-sentenced survivors of the uprising, who will be calling in from the Ohio State Penitentiary, Ohio's supermax prison.

What does it mean to be a compassionate, dedicated, humane police officer in the country with the world's highest incarceration rate and a continuing tradition of racial injustice? Insurgent Theatre brings audiences behind the badge of a neighborhood liaison officer, using stripped-down interactive theatre and a radical analysis to peer into the inner life of a man in blue.
