Learning about the Prison Industrial Complex.


I’ve been spending a lot of my free time reading books over the past few weeks and the last couple ones have in some part been focused on the prison industrial complex (PIC) and police harassment and brutality. My own experience and knowledge about the prison abolition movement has been only cursory and thus, learning more about all of this has been incredibly eye opening. So I thought I’s start a list of books and films to learn more about both the prison industrial complex and related abolition movement.




Of course, this is in no way a final and complete list of everything being said or done. But at the very least, this is a start. Learning about the prison industrial complex and prison abolition should be important to any form of activism and should be done in an intersectional way.
