The Long History of Corruption and Violence in Arkansas's Prison System

Oct 19, 2020

This week's visit with Randy Dixon from the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History is about efforts to reform Arkansas's prisons, which have been accused of corruption, violence, torture and lack of food. We hear archived material, as well as new interviews with people who are part of a story that's unfolded over the last several decades starting with a ruling in 1969 that deemed several aspects of the existing prison system unconstitutional.
