Kris Davis, Val Jeanty, and Lily Finnegan
Sleepwalkers act in mindlessness, prison guards enforce. How do we imagine a society that breaks away from what we are told is possible? Free of sleepwalkers and prison guards? Imagination is a key element of abolition. This piece was inspired by the words of Robin D.G. Kelley and Jackie Wang, both of whom are quoted.
