New Film Links Forced Sterilization in California Prisons to Horrific History of Eugenics in U.S.

Democracy Now - Tue, 09/22/2020 - 13:00
We continue to look at revelations about forced hysterectomies at an ICE facility in Georgia have forced a reckoning with the long history of sterilizations in the U.S. — particularly of Black, Brown, poor and disabled people — and the way this procedure has continued in jails and prisons to the present day. We speak with Kelli Dillon, who was sterilized at the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla in 2001 and who is featured in the documentary “Belly of the Beast,” which tells the stories of women subjected to unwanted sterilization behind bars in California, and filmmaker Erika Cohn. The film opens in theaters on October 16 and will premiere on PBS’s “Independent Lens” on November 23.

We continue our interview with Salvadoran American journalist Roberto Lovato, author of the new book “Unforgetting: A Memoir of Family, Migration, Gangs, and Revolution in the Americas,” about his family’s migration from El Salvador to the United States, how he returned to the country as a young man to fight with the FMLN against the U.S.-backed right-wing government responsible for grave human rights violations, and his embrace of journalism to tell the stories of people on the margins, including visiting a prison for immigrant families in Texas and revisiting the U.S. role in the El Mozote massacre.
