An Abolitionist's Freedom Song

Video is free to stream


During his incarceration, Peterson immersed himself in anti-violence activism, education, and prison abolition. He continues this work today, and he joins us now to recount his coming of age story, contained in his book Bird Uncaged: An Abolitionist’s Freedom Song. With his own story, Peterson challenges the typical “redemption” narrative and our assumptions about who deserves justice.
