Dear campus community,

The History Department and the Black Studies Program are proud to present a
fourth event in our series on the Attica Prison Uprising of 1971. Joe
Heath, a civil and Indigenous rights lawyer, will share his experiences
from his third day in law school in Buffalo in September of 1971, as an
organizer, law student, criminal trial lawyer and class action civil rights
lawyer, up to the present. His talk is titled, “Attica 46 Years Later: The
Cover-Ups Continue.” Please join us on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2:30-3:45 pm in
Newton 203. A reception will follow.

Support for this event and the other Attica events is made possible from
the contributions of the History Department, Black Studies Program, the
Office of the Provost, the English Department, the Xerox Center for
Multicultural Teacher Education, Women and Gender Studies, the Gold Program,
