California’s prison system houses over 170,000 people. We discuss prison culture through a look at prison art made both inside and outside the bars, and we talk with contributors to a new collection of art and ideas on incarceration called “Prison/Culture.”

Guests:

Angela Davis, former professor in the History of Consciousness Department at UC Santa Cruz, founder of Critical Resistance, a grassroots organization dedicated to abolishing the prison industrial complex and contributor to "Prison/Culture"

Mark Dean Johnson, professor of art at San Francisco State University and contributor to "Prison/Culture"

Judith Tannenbaum, poet and author of "By Heart: Poetry, Prison and Two Lives"
