On Thursday, October 12th and Friday, October 13th, Students for Prison Education and Reform (SPEAR) held its annual performance protest in which students occupied a 7′ x 9′ space for 23 hours, representing the 23 hours a day that many incarcerated people are held in 7 x 9 cells. 46 students and faculty participated.
Ameya Hadap (2021): “They talk about the lost generation of African American men. So many different things are broken within the justice and incarceration system. The idea that someone could be there for 23 hours a day — I was in there for one hour, and that was tough enough to get through.”
