A Conversation on the Political Writings of Russell Maroon Shoatz

Russell Maroon Shoatz is a political prisoner who has been held unjustly for over thirty years, including two decades in solitary confinement. He was active as a leader in the Black Liberation Movement in Philadelphia, both above and underground. His successful escapes from maximum security prisons earned him the title “Maroon.” This is the first published collection of his written works.

Join us for a conversation about resistance and survival as communities organize across walls and borders against incarceration.
