36. The Attica Prison Uprising Part 2: The Uprising

Thanks for waiting for us for a whole month! We're back with part 2 of the Attica Prison Uprising. This part consists of how the initial riot broke out and how the riot became a proper civil rights protest. We talk about the negotiations between prisoners and prison officials for better conditions, then the bloody and tragic ending, and the legacy Attica left.
