At this breakfast, Thompson will discuss the process of researching and writing her award-winning book, Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy, currently being made into a feature film.

The first 50 students who register will receive a free copy of Thompson’s book which may be picked up in advance at The Wallace Center, 05-1475 (from main entrance, go to far, right corner-look for TWC Operations). 

Thompson is Professor of History and Afro-american and African Studies at the University of Michigan. Thompson’s research on the history of policing, mass incarceration, and the current criminal justice system has been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, Time, The Atlantic, Salon, Dissent, NBC, New Labor Forum, The Daily Best, and the Huffington Post, and she served on a National Academy of Sciences blue-ribbon panel that studied the causes and consequences of mass incarceration in the U.S.

Thompson will also give a public lecture on “The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Why It Matters Today” on September 14th  from 4-5:30 pm in Ingle Auditorium, open to the Rochester community.

This event is co-sponsored by the Provost’s Office and the College of Liberal Arts Dean’s office, the Departments of Criminal Justice, History, and Public Policy, and the School of Communications.
