African people face the daily terror of the police, a rate of unemployment reaching 70% in their communities, and an imprisonment rate of one out of eight for African men. Uhuru Solidarity Movement member Kristin Gordon in Chicago discusses the recent sentencing of former Chicago police commander Jon Burge who oversaw the torture of at least 200 African and Latino men during his career. Also, the recent Georgia prison strike is discussed as part of the growing African resistance to a colonial, brutal prison system.
