Since the 1980s prison construction and incarceration rates in the U.S.
have been rising exponentially, evoking huge public concern about their
proliferation, their recent privatisation and their promise of enormous
profits. But these prisons house hugely disproportionate numbers of people of
colour, betraying the racism embedded in the system, while studies show that
increasing prison sentences has had no effect on crime. Instead, the growing
number of prisons have attracted vast amounts of capital - from the
construction industry to food and health care provision and prison labour.
Here, esteemed civil rights activist Angela Davis voices her well-supported
opinion that the future of democracy depends on our ability to develop radical
theories and practices that make it possible to plan and fight for a world
beyond the prison industrial complex.
