IAS faculty member Dan Berger participated in a roundtable discussion for Process, the blog of the Organization of American Historians, on prisoner organizing in the 1960s and 1970s. The three-part roundtable discussed the history of prisoner organizing, research methods for those studying the history of prisons and prisoners, and the relevance of this history and scholarship on contemporary criminal justice policy. Berger also published an essay about prisoners in Black Power 50, a companion book to an exhibit at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture about the history of the Black Power Movement.
