Garrett Felber’s new book, Those Who Know Don’t Say: The Nation of Islam, the Black Freedom Struggle, and the Carceral State (UNC Press, 2020), shows how state repression and Muslim organizing laid the groundwork for the modern carceral state and the contemporary prison abolition movement that opposes it. Currently an assistant professor of history at the University of Mississippi, Felber is project director of the Parchman Oral History Project (POHP), a collaborative project on the history of incarceration in Mississippi. In 2016, Felber co-founded Liberation Literacy, an abolitionist collective inside and outside Oregon prisons. Felber is coeditor of the Portable Malcolm X Reader with the late Manning Marable and is currently working on a biography of former political prisoner Martin Sostre.
