Inmate Sunni Ali, A-1 Block, talks about the discriminatory application of the internal classification system whereby White prisoners serving shorter sentences than African Americans prisoners are given better cells and are more easily transferred to better facilities.

Dinizulu Kamau discusses violence against inmates in the Departmental Segregation Unit (DSU), 10 Block. Program offers an in-depth look at the policies, procedures, and inmates of the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Walpole, one of the most controversial maximum-security correctional facilities in the United States. Throughout the four days spent interviewing Walpole's inmates and staff, Say Brother documented the discriminatory application of the internal classification system (resulting in African Americans serving longer sentences and being placed in stricter confines), the virtual absence of minority staff, and the punitive rather than rehabilitative programs at the prison, particularly those of the Departmental Segregation Unit (DSU), 10 Block. (Say Brother was afforded the unusual privilege of being able to enter and obtain footage of 10 Block.) Those interviewed include Fred A. Butterworth (Superintendent of Walpole), Paul DiPaolo (a Walpole Social Worker), Carol Gabel (Director of Prisoner Programs), and Thomas DaSilva (Supervisor of DSU/10 Block). (See Program 923 for additional information on inmates Dinizulu Kamau and Adbullah Khalil Sabree.) Produced by Barbara Barrow-Murray. Directed by Brian Clarke. (less)
