IAS faculty member Dan Berger gave two lectures in Florida. At the University of Tampa's Honors Program Symposia, Berger spoke about his book Captive Nation: Black Prison Organizing in the Civil Rights Era to highlight the origins of mass incarceration in response to prisoner activism in the 1960s and 1970s. Berger also delivered a talk entitled “Prisons, Slavery, and Abolition” at the Civic Media Center in Gainesville. The talk highlighted how captivity more than labor animates the connection between chattel slavery and mass incarceration.
