Talk Tomorrow: Attica 50 Years Later—Memory, History, Legacy



The talk is organized by Marianne Kupin-Lisbin, a 20-21 Public Humanities Fellow, offers the UR community an opportunity to remember the Attica Rebellion, consider its long-term impact on mass incarceration, and reflect on what it means to UR as the Rochester Education Justice Initiative expands their college in prison program to Attica CF this fall.


This will be a panel discussion with Precious Bedell, REJI’s Assistant Director of Community Outreach, Jalil Muntaquim, a local author and activist, and Dolph Sturgis, a survivor of the Attica Rebellion. Prof Joshua Dubler will moderate the event, which is free and open to the public. This event is sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of History, the Department for Religion and Classics, the Fredrick Douglass Institute, and the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies.
