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

newjimcrow 160x235.jpg

by Michelle Alexander

Reviewed by Linda:

A devastating analysis of how we have come to have the majority of young black men in our major American cities locked behind bars or labeled felons for life for drug crimes that are largely ignored when committed by whites. This is one of those rare books that makes you question the "truths" you think you know about your society. Written by a scholar, lawyer, and former supreme court law clerk, this book is receiving a great deal of well-deserved attention.
