Thomas Dichter speaking for DPA at Public School protest 2012

Thomas Dichter is on this week's Decarcerate PA radio! He's been a militant in our ranks from early on and has come on the show to talk about the historic roots of mass incarceration. Thomas gets into the failures of the first penitentiaries, connecting the dots between movements, quantifying dehumanization and the transition from slavery to the current system of racist mass incarceration and the reimagination of freedom. HRC's Shakaboona chimes in via Prison Radio for our Voices from the Inisde segment.

As is always the case, 1 hour was not nearly enough to explore this important topic.
