Annotation: Before Orange was the New BlackIn 1989 there was a prison riot so devastating in central Pennsylvania that it caused millions of dollars in damages to the prison complex. It was humiliating and embarrassing to its prison officials.
This affected the entire Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and Federal Bureau for years to come.The Correctional Bureau went out of their way to keep this incident out of the mainstream. Even most people in the same county prison system had not heard about the riot that took place in 1989. To this day it’s forbidden to talk about the riot inside the PA Correctional Prison. This is the true story and testimony of Derrick Gibson’s experience on the social tension, and an historical account as an eyewitness to events and incidents that took place.Before Orange was the New Black – The Camp Hill Story will peak your interest, captivate, humor and even anger you as you read along.
