A Conversation About Mass Incarceration, Solitary Confinement, and the Future of Criminal Justice Reform

Moderated by UC Presidential Chair Craig Haney, panelists include:

The two surviving members of the “Angola 3”—Robert King, who spent 29 years in solitary confinement in the notorious Angola Prison in Louisiana, and Albert Woodfox, who spent 43 years isolated in the same facility. Since their release, both men have devoted themselves to a worldwide campaign to end solitary confinement.
