What would a society without prisons look like??
Dr. Kwame Holmes led us in a discussion of Akwaeke Emezi’s young adult novel Pet, which seeks alternate visions for justice in a utopian world without prisons.
Kwame Holmes is Director of the Kingston Housing Lab, a Scholar-In-Residence in the Human Rights Project at Bard College, and Cohort Mentor for the Bard Baccalaureate program. He is a critical geographer, historian and cultural critic with a particular interest in the emotional politics of urban development and inequality.
