Mass incarceration is a lived, sensory experience.

most eye-popping statistics alone cannot relate the enormity of its
psychological and societal impacts. This concise, illustrated primer is a
collaboration between one of mass incarceration's sharpest opponents,
James Kilgore, and information artist Vic Liu. It brings to life the
histories and means of daily survival of the marginalized people
ensnared in this racist, ableist system of class-based oppression. The
book elegantly weaves together the most insightful activist scholarship
with vivid testimonials by incarcerated people as they fight back
against oppression and imagine freedom.

Those targeted for incarceration do not simply submit to a monochromatic existence behind bars. The Warehouse showcases
the abolition futures being crafted from the inside as people resist
through direct action and artistic expression. This book is designed to
inform, enrage, and ultimately inspire the same radical hope propelling
incarcerated underminers of the carceral state.
