New Publication: Jon Burge and Chicago Police Torture by Marissa Faustini and Sharlyn Grace

blackbox_med We are excited to share a new publication today in the Historical Moments of Policing, Violence and Resistance series. Marissa Faustini and Sharlyn Grace collaborated to produce an excellent zine about John Burge and Chicago Police Torture.

The publication provides an excellent primer on the issues involved in the Chicago police torture. Many of the survivors continue to seek justice for their suffering today.

You can access and read the new publication along with others in the series here.

You can also hear Sharlyn and other authors and illustrators discuss policing, violence and torture in person, this Tuesday March 19th. Details of the event are here. We hope to see you on Tuesday. In the meantime, please share the new zine with others.
