Throughout September, the Geneseo History Department and Black Studies Program are co-sponsoring a series of events on the Attica Uprising and Why Mass Incarceration Matters. These events address local issues with national implications.

Joe Heath will discuss “Attica 46 Years Later: the Cover Ups Continue.” Heath, who is a civil and Indigenous rights lawyer, will share his experiences from his 3rd day in law school in Buffalo in September of 1971, as an organizer, law student, criminal trial lawyer and class action civil rights lawyer, up to the present.
