Soledad Brothers

The Soledad Brothers — George Jackson, Fleeta Drumgo and John Clutchette — helped show the world how authority figures were creating an atmosphere much like slavery inside prisons. The brothers led a hunger strike and uprising in San Quentin to bring attention to the inhumane treatment of inmates that had caused the death of several of their black fellow prisoners.
