Book Talk and Signing: "City of Inmates" with Kelly Lytle Hernández
Kelly Lytle Hernández’s City of Inmates: Conquest, Rebellion and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles, 1771-1965 explains how the City of Angels became the city that imprisons more people than any other city in the United States, which imprisons more people than any other country in the world. Hernández, who the interim director of the Bunche Center, documents the historical bond between racial fantasies of conquest and the eliminatory capacities of incarceration through an exploration of histories of native elimination, immigrant exclusion, and black disappearance.
