Inside/Outside Abolitionist Newspaper Reading Group

July 2017: We have launched a reading group in a new type of partnership between CR Oakland members & volunteers and imprisoned activists & writers. The goal of the project is to expand our understanding of the Prison Industrial Complex and its abolition, through reading, writing responses, and discussing the latest issue of the Abolitionist: Re-Imagining the Black Panther Party Ten Point Program. Check out our solicitation letter for more info on the project.

This is an ongoing project and we will post the compiled responses in August 2017. Here is a taste of some of the responses from imprisoned writers.

Robert Chan: “The Beat Goes On”

Syncere Shabazz: “Visions for the Blackman”

D. Joseph Chyatte: “Killing the Poor Tonight”
