This program aired Nov. 9, 2015. Summary provided by the creators: In the early 20th century, new laws inspired by World War I ensnared revolutionary thinkers all over the country, and sent them all to the same place to do time: Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Kansas. It turns out Leavenworth was a hotbed of radical training and thought. At the center of it all was Mexican revolutionary Ricardo Flores Magon.
Guest: Christina Heatherton, professor of American Studies, Trinity College
