Kent State University history professor Elaine Frantz's lecture on the "Experience of Being Arrested" will air on American History TV on C-SPAN 3 at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The program is part of American History TV’s “Lectures in History” program.
Frantz, a historian of violence, teaches a class about what it is like to be arrested in the United States, from the 1850s to now.
She examines which groups are most likely to be arrested and how the process changed with the introduction of police sidearms and patrol vehicles.
The class took place at the Trumbull Correctional Institution, in Warren Township in Trumbull County, as part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, which brings together college students and inmates for classes.
The show also will air at midnight Saturday and 5:45 a.m. Sunday, as well as noon Dec. 9, also on C-SPAN 3.
