Voices in the Shadow Book
Between February and April 2021, members of Border Patrol co-organized an exhibition called "Voices in the Shadow" with Mesa Verde residents Levi Cruz, Walter Cruz-Zavala, and William Nickel. The exhibition featured much of the contents of this book alongside video interviews, hand-made objects and a small abolitionist library. It made public for the first time the detainees' activist work in support of better living conditions and documented the abysmal food served inside the facility. Part catalogue and part archive, this book contains letters, portraits, recipes, and exhibition images related to Border Patrol's ongoing collaboration with detainees at the Mesa Verde ICE Processing Center in Bakersfield, CA.
Voices in the Shadow is presented as part of SPACE's exhibition, What Rhymes with Freedom? in conjunction with Freedom & Captivity: A Humanities Initiative for an Abolitionist Future. Click here to access the Freedom & Captivity Abolition Resource List for further reading.
