March 14, 2014 – Prisons & Racialization

My guest on this program is Steve Martinot, author of The Machinery of Whiteness: Studies in the Structure of Racialization, and “The Need to Abolish the Prison System: An Ethical Indictment.” He has been a human rights activist for most of his life, as a union organizer, community organizer and anti-war organizer, including Latin America solidarity work. He has worked as a machinist and truck driver, and taught literature and cultural studies at the Univ. of Colorado and San Francisco State University.
