Slaves of the State: Black Incarceration from the Chain Gang to the Penitentiary

by Dennis Childs
£17.00   paperback  University of Minnesota Press (2015)

Slaves of the State: Black Incarceration from the Chain Gang to the Penitentiary by Dennis Childs In Slaves of the State Dennis Childs argues that the incarceration of black people and other historically repressed groups in chain gangs, peon camps, prison plantations, and penitentiaries represents a ghostly perpetuation of chattel slavery.
 
With more than 2.3 million people in the country’s jails, prisons, and immigrant detention centers, Childs exposes slavery as a continuing social reality of U.S. empire.
