The subtitle of this chapter is taken directly from the title of Angela Davis' 2003
book, Are Prisons Obsolete?. In light of that fact, I probably need to begin with the
disclaimer that I love (I am an adoring fan of) Angela Davis. I've never met Angela
Davis. I'm sure we don't see eye to eye on some issues as you will soon see. But
Angela Davis is an important icon of my youth. Angela Davis epitomizes my
earliest images of what it means to be Black in America. From 1970 to 1975,
there is no ...

that should be cause for concern in any case, but especially when it is tied
together with the exploitation of prison labor by private corporations. And tied to
this exploitation of prison labor are an “array of relationships linking corporations,

1 Angela Davis powerfully details this point in the introduction to Are Prisons
Obsolete? (2003). I hope this chapter can contribute to the same project by
encouraging a critical self-examination of our investments in prison, especially for
those who are from communities where ending up in prison seems unlikely and
for those who are made to feel safer and more secure by practices of

Writing in 2003, Angela Davis argues, “No one—not even the most ardent
defenders of the supermax—would try to argue today that absolute segregation ...
is restorative and healing” (Are Prisons Obsolete?, 50). Yet the majority decision
in Beard v. Banks rests on such a claim in justifying the Pennsylvania prison's
deprivation policy as an “incentiv[e] for inmate growth.” 5. Shapiro et al., Brief, 11;
