View a screening of The Pendleton 2: They Stood Up, a groundbreaking new documentary that tells the story of political prisoners John “Balagoon” Cole and Christopher “Naeem” Trotter, the leaders of the 1985 Indiana prison uprising that saved a man’s life. Directed by Too Black and TheKingTrill.
Though thousands live inside prisons in Indiana, their stories rarely make it out. This event seeks to foster bonds of understanding between those inside and outside of prison by exploring the events of 1985 – which were a reaction to a lack of nourishment. Those incarcerated in Pendleton Correctional Facility were being denied food, comfort, safety, and intellectual care. Their uprising was in direct response to a multifaceted starvation of mind, body, and spirit. Learn about this little discussed moment in Indiana’s history and the continued efforts at seeking justice for Cole and Trotter.
