My name is Charlie Hinton and I have been a part of the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Network for a number of years. I wanted to invite you to my showing of Solitary Man a piece based on my interactions with prisoners in Pelican Bay SHU/solitary confinement, where the largest prisoner hunger strike in history began in July, 2013.
The story is set in November, 2014, where I visit Otis Washington, a 64 year old lifer and New York City native who has been locked up since 1975, and at Pelican Bay since it opened in 1989.
Will you join us on Saturday?
What: Solitary Man, My Visit to Pelican Bay State Prison
When: Saturday, June 11th at 7:30pm
Where: Brooklyn Commons (388 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn, 11217)

The show supports the worldwide movement to end mass incarceration and solitary confinement. It is written in performed by me, Charlie Hinton with music by Fred Johnson.
I hope that you could come out. Suggested donation is $5-10, but no one will be turned away.
