Reginald Pulley, former Warden of San Quentin State Prison, speaks at Fairhaven College on January 25, 2012.
When Reginald L. Pulley was appointed warden of California State Prison at San Quentin in February 1982, he happened to be the first Black person to be appointed in California to head a maximum security prison. During his tenure as warden he was quoted at a public hearing as calling the prison a "monstrosity" that should be closed down. Mr. Pulley will discuss his views on the reality of the prison system and his involvement in it.
