Note: This listing lets you donate money to the #PrisonsKill Book Club. Using the drop-down menu, you can donate at one of five levels: $5, $10, $15, $20 and $25. Donations are pooled to buy and ship copies of this month's book selection to incarcerated comrades on the #PrisonsKill mailing list.
The goal of #PrisonsKill is to show you how prisons are inherent death traps, how they been letting us die before Covid-19 and that will continue to be so until we let this system die.
The #PrisonsKill Book Club has been organized by our incarcerated comrades who are part of the #PrisonsKill media project. The goal of the book club is to get more radical literature inside for reading and discussion. Each month a new book is selected from among those featured on the Millennials Are Killing Capitalism podcast. Copies are purchased and sent to as many members of the book club as funds allow.
This month, we'll be sending out copies of The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power by Dr. Jared Ball, which was just published in a new second edition. The book presents a compelling critique of the pervasive narrative that Black "buying power" is the antidote to social and structural inequalities woven into the fabric of U.S. racial capitalist society. We are confident that our comrades inside will enjoy Dr. Ball's book, and we are grateful to our comrades at Millennials Are Killing Capitalism for selecting it as this month's pick.
