On Easter Sunday in 1993, prisoners seized a major area of the prison at the maximum-security Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. More than 400 prisoners, including an unlikely alliance between two usually opposing gangs – the ‘Aryan Brotherhood’ and the ‘Gangsta Disciples’ – held L block for 11 days, during which nine prisoners alleged to have been informants and one hostaged correctional officer were murdered. Lucasville gives an in-depth account of the causes of the disturbance, what happened during the 11 days and the fairness of the trials that followed.
