"The New Jim Crow - Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness"

28 Apr 2013

"The New Jim Crow - Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness" will be discussed at this Stand Against Racism event offered by the Ethical Society of Asheville, Sunday, April 28th, 2:00 - 4:00 at the Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road in north Asheville. This book, written by Michelle Alexander, makes the compelling argument that the huge racial disparity of punishment in America is the crisis of our time, has its roots in our country's slavery and Jim Crow periods and is the new front of the historic struggle for racial justice.

Read the book now and be part of the discussion or come to hear the discussion of those who have read the book. All are welcome!
