December 14, 2017 @ 4:00 am – 5:00 am
LOS ANGELES– Public Discussion of Kelly Lytle Hernández’ book City of Inmates: Conquest, Rebellion & the Rise of Human Caging. Lytle-Hernández unmasks the converging histories of incarcerations of native, immigrant, black and while working class people in her groundbreaking book, City of Inmates. She will also display the Million Dollar Hoods Mapping Project. “What we have uncovered is that L.A.’s nearly billion-dollar jail budget is largely committed to incarcerating residents of just a few neighborhoods,” said Kelly Lytle-Hernández, UCLA Professor of history and African-American Studies. “In some neighborhoods, such as Lancaster, Palmdale, and Compton, tens of millions of dollars have been spent since 2010.” Lunch will be served.
