There will be two faculty-led discussions of the New Your Times bestseller “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” by Michelle Alexander.

“Michelle Alexander argues convincingly that the huge disparity of punishment in America is not mere result of neutral state action. She sees the rise of mass incarceration as opening up a new front in the historic struggle for racial justice. And she’s right. If you care about justice in America, you need to read this book!” (– Glenn C Loury, professor of economics, Brown University)
