Presentation/Lecture by Dr. Heather Ann Thompson

As part of the Historical Horizons lecture series, Pulitzer Prize and Bancroft Prize winning author Dr. Heather Ann Thompson will cap off the College’s special Convocation Day, delivering a presentation, Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and its Legacy,” based on her award-winning book. Attica State Prison is part of GCC’s history with inmate education a part of its programming in the 1980s. Dr. Thompson’s book provides a definitive account of the prison uprising in 1971. She utilized sources available to no other researchers to write a reliable tome that upends the myths and exposes cover-ups of that violent event that captured international attention.
