40th Anniversary of the Attica Uprising.

It's a good excuse to examine the human rights and the prison industrial complex with youth. 

A couple resources...

Today's article in NYT by Heather Ann Thompson, The Lingering Injustice of Attica

and

The Chicago PIC Teaching Collective- Attica Uprising Primer

How do you teach this topic? Does anyone have additional resources? 

Andrea

Hello everyone:

I'm a Taiwanese(Chinese) teacher and a graduate student.

My thesis is written about King's inspirations of Taiwanese education.

I'm so interested about the Liberation Curriculum!

Greetings from Atlanta: City of Peace. Hello Liberation Community. I'm pleased to be a part of your group and wish you a memorable Peace Millennium. Our nonprofit knows that it is in groups like this which can facilitate eventual success with different key projects, in this particular case, I'm referring to our Global Peace Academy (ATL) project. We recently posted a new topic in the general Discussion Forum and we invite you all to read it. Also, please add me as a Friend.
Much peace and love,
John

Mr. Abdullah - the Liberation Community is to provide a forum for discussions on global liberation and social justice movements and to inform members of any events, workshops or resources put out by the Liberation Curriculum, the education program of the Martin Luther King Institute at Stanford University.

On another note, I came across a very interesting article on the importance of a 'Good Eye' that reminds me of how Gandhi dealt with all people, including his enemies. To have a Good Eye is to see only the highest and holiest in people, not their defects or differences. It is to see all human beings from the base of love, compassion, and nonviolence that Gandhi championed. The article dives into this concept very well. I hope you all enjoy it. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=3772

Dear Friends,
I find the work of Father M.J. Edwin see ncnworld.org to be a wonderful way to begin community education through participation in democratic processes starting at a micro-level, then unfolding to the largest macro. I encourage everyone to visit this site. In the tab on 'papers' are some amazing dialogues as well as papers that might be useful to us.
The work that he is doing is the practical work that Gandhi did, to empower the 'little' people at the bottom to take and made the decisions that effect them. This is real education, that imparts human rights simultaneously along with it.
Best,
Aunty Kamala

I found this profound quote from Vinoba, who was an active follower of Gandhi's principles:
"Many of us do not yet realise that there is avery little connection between true mental development and the mere amassinbg of information. It is enought if the children know how to obtain items of information when they have a use for them, and it is the task of education to teach them how. But trughtfulness, practical skill, a readiness to serve - these are the big things..."
from Vinoba Bhave (2008)Thoughts on Education. : Sarva Seva Sangh Prakashan.
