About this Show

Escape to Alcatraz

In 1969, a group of Native Americans took an abandoned prison, Alcatraz, and claimed it for their own. The 19 month occupation helped people across the country understand what was happening on reservations. After 50 years, we reveal how the story was covered with new footage that hasn't been seen in over 5 decades.
