Friday night on the show, we will visit with Dr. Robert Chase about the upcoming Symposium, Sunbelt Prisons and the Carceral State: New Frontiers of State Power, Resistance and Racial Oppression.

 Dr. Chase specializes in public history, oral history, civil rights and social justice movements, and African-American history. Dr. Chase has held postdoctoral fellowships with Southern Methodist University, Case Western Reserve University, and Rutgers University.  His forthcoming manuscript, Civil Rights on the Cell Block: The Prisoners’ Rights Movement and the Construction of the Carceral State, 1945–1990, explores the roots of twentieth century prison growth, inmate society and the coercive relationship between keeper and kept, and the legal struggle between inmates and the state over race, prisoners’ rights, and questions of citizenship.
