Gallery Conversation » Prison Power: How Prison Influenced the Movement for Black Liberation

Join University of Arkansas Professor Dr. Lisa Corrigan in a discussion on her acclaimed book Prison Power: How Prison Influenced the Movement for Black Liberation. The conversation will trace how imprisonment—a site for both political and personal transformation—shaped movement leaders by influencing their political analysis and organizational strategies, from civil rights to Black Power.  

Prison Power is the Winner of the 2017 Diamond Anniversary Book Award and the African American Communication and Culture Division’s 2017 Outstanding Book Award, both from the National Communication Association. Lisa Corrigan is an Associate Professor of Communication, Director of the Gender Studies Program, and Affiliate Faculty in both African & African American Studies and Latin American Studies at the University of Arkansas. She researches and teaches in the areas of social movement studies, the Black Power and civil rights movements, prison studies, feminist studies, the Cuban Revolution, and the history of the Cold War.
