This week, we interview a participant in Perilous, a new prison history project. Perilous launched its website earlier this year, with a goal of compiling all the grassroots, collective mobilizations that have happened in US prisons since the prisoners’ movement seriously kicked off again in 2010. With this interview, we got a sense of their process and approach, as well as an overview of the trajectory of the movement so far. We are also sharing a moving statement from Evelyn, the mother of Melvin Perez, a prisoner in Florida seeking clemency after two decades inside on a shaky conviction.
