We start out with news about the recent execution of Kevin Johnson in Missouri, and a call to strike from Pennslyvania prisoners. Afterwards, we share an interview conducted by James Kilgore, who spoke with Albert Woodfox and Robert King of the Angola 3. After that, we will feature part of Kilgore’s interview with Sekou Kambui, a longtime New Afrikan political prisoner, who reflects on his involvement in past prison strikes.
Woodfox spent more time in solitary confinement than anyone else in the US, and was released shortly before this conversation took place. Woodfox died earlier this year, so we wanted to return to this 2016 interview to honor his memory. Further, all the interviewees share important reflections on past prison strikes, which feel particularly apt given the January strike called in Pennsylvania.
