A conversation between authors Marlon Peterson and Kiese Laymon, moderated by Tongo Eisen-Martin,  discussing Peterson’s new book, Bird Uncaged: An Abolitionist's Freedom Song. Bird Uncaged is a 21st century abolitionist memoir, a powerful debut that demands a shift from punishment to healing, an end to mass incarceration and a new vision of justice.

 

Peterson challenges the typical "redemption" narrative and our assumptions about justice. With vulnerability and insight, he uncovers the many cages--from the daily violence and trauma of poverty, to policing, to enforced masculinity and the brutality of incarceration--created and maintained by American society.
