Witness to History
Attica: Beyond the Riot

Michael Smith and Donald Almeter were young correctional officers when the 1971 Attica prison riot broke out and changed their worlds forever. Smith and Almeter will share about their experiences, both as correctional officers at Attica Prison and as hostages during the riot. They will be joined by historian Dr. Heather Ann Thompson, who is currently writing a book about the Attica prison riot.
