Thursday, November 15, 2018,
5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Join 5C Prison Abolition Group and Art After Hours at the Pomona College Museum of Art as we invite Sheila Pinkel, emeritus professor of art at Pomona College to speak about the artwork and life of David Earl Williams, a.k.a. Romeo.

Williams, who has been in prison for most of his life and currently on death row in California, continues to make art about family, injustice, and his life experiences. Professor Pinkel will be speaking about his artwork and resistance to an inherently unjust system of incarceration and violence.

This is part of a series of events hosted by the 5C Prison Abolition Group that highlights the issues within the prison industrial complex in California and in the United States. If you are interested in learning more about the 5C Prison Abolition Group email 5cprisonabolition@gmail.com.
