The Black Myths Podcast

Mar 24, 2022

In this episode, we discuss how telling oppressed people to never resort to violence is BS. We use a case study of a little-known prison rebellion at the Indiana Reformatory (Pendleton Corrections) in 1985 that required violence for survival. We speak with the co-leaders of the ‘85 rebellion who are still unjustly locked up in prison, John C Cole, aka Balagoon, and Christopher “Naeem” Trotter. they highlight the conditions that led to the rebellion, why taking over the prison was a form of self-defense and the need for prison abolition. We also discuss how the United States stands in no moral position to condemn violence when it perpetuates it around including the current war in Ukraine and its military aggression throughout the globe.
