Book discussion: The New Jim Crow

Jun 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Author and legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control—relegating millions to a permanent second-class status—even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness. In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a “call to action.” – Amazon.com

Discussion led by Alan Berolzheimer.

This book discussion is cosponsored by the Randolph group FORE, Focus on Racial Equality.
