Join us for this engaging discussion of thought-provoking non-fiction titles. In July, we will discuss

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander 

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.
