The New Jim Crow

List Price: $19.95 (Paperback - Social Justice /American Criminal Justice System/ African American Incarceration - 2010)
The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
Description:As the United States celebrates the nation triumph over race with the election of Barack Obama, the majority of young black men in major American cities are locked behind bars or have been labeled felons for life. Although Jim Crow laws have been wiped off the books, an astounding percentage of the African American community remains trapped in a subordinate status - much like their grandparents before them. In this incisive critique, former litigator-turned-legal-scholar Michelle Alexander provocatively argues that we have not ended racial caste in America: we have simply redesigned it. Alexander shows that, by targeting black men and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, even as it formally adheres to the principle of color blindness. The New Jim Crow challenges the civil rights community - and all of us - to place mass incarceration at the forefront of a new movement for racial justice in America. (352 pages) Adult
Ashay says, "Still hot on the Best Seller list this is the book everyone is reading. It is an eye opener to what is really happening to our incarcerated brothers and sisters, present and future. (More African Americans are under correctional control today... than were enslaved in 1850). Adding to that, the situation they face when they return to their communities: legal discrimination for jobs, housing, education and benefits despite being rehabilitated. Michelle Alexander should be applauded for her scholarly work and activism to one of most serious problems facing the black community today. Get this book and spread the word."
