The New Jim Crow

Thursday, June 13, 2019 | 7:00pm

Racial Justice Task Force (RJTF) members invite all to the discussion of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by legal scholar Michelle Alexander. Our facilitator is Nancy Stockbridge.

"Now and then a book comes along that might in time touch the public and educate social commentators, policymakers, and politicians about a glaring wrong that we have been living with that we also somehow don't know how to face. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander is such a work." โ€” The New York Review of Books.

The New Jim Crow is a grand wake-up call in the midst of a long slumber of indifference to the poor and vulnerable.โ€ โ€”Cornel West
