3. FFT: Before Attica: The Kingston Pen’s Forgotten Riot
September 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
On April 14, 1971, one of the most violent and devastating prison riots in Canadian history erupted behind the walls of Kingston Pen. Yet fifty years later, few know the real story, and few are willing to talk about it. In Murder on the Inside: The True Story of the Deadly Riot at Kingston Penitentiary, author Catherine Fogarty negotiates the stone walls and red tape of the prison system to explore the motives behind the violence, including a call for basic human rights that still plagues the system today.
