About this Event

Historically Speaking - Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and its Legacy -- The publication of University of Michigan Department of History professor Heather Thompson’s book coincides with the forty-fifth anniversary of the country's largest prison rebellion at Attica. Blood in the Water will shed new light on the riot, the state's violent response, and the decades-long implications of Attica for those involved. The book also includes interviews with former Attica prisoners, hostages, families of victims, lawyers, judges, law enforcement, and state officials; it is expected to reveal significant amounts of material never before released to the public. The evening will include a moderated discussion with the author and Michael Fletcher, Senior Writer concentrating on criminal justice, social issues and politics for ESPN/The Undefeated
