Dr. Boyce Video: Why We Must Support the Inmates in Georgia’s Prison Protest
From Dr. Boyce Watkins:
I spoke with Rev. Kenny Glasgow recently about the unspeakable things happening to prison inmates in the state of Georgia. Many of these men are being tortured and beaten nearly to death as a result of a peaceful protest they launched back in 2010. Some of them have been kept in solitary confinement for a year and a half, denied access to food, showers, exercise and all the other things they need in order to survive.
Even if one owes a debt to society, the debt should not be paid like this. As a man who has had relatives subjected to this kind of torture as a result of mistakes they made in youth, I stand with Rev. Glasgow and his coalition in fighting this horrific problem. I hope you will support us as we seek to find humane ways to allow men and women to be rehabilitated and return to their communities as productive husbands and fathers. We must declare an end to the New Jim Crow of mass incarceration.
