Exhibition Annotation:
Ironically, poor communities long reported, and Congressional records prove, that the CIA worked with the military and local law enforcement–under the direction of the Reagan Administration and subsequent administrations–to flood neighborhoods with drugs and weapons in an effort to destabilize the energy and infrastructure of the civil rights movements. The resulting increase in drug use and violence destroyed families, bankrupted communities and fueled even greater expansion of police, courts, detention and incarceration.
