A stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. The book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year, and been dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” by numerous commentators, including Cornel West. The New Jim Crow tells a truth our nation has been reluctant to face. We will discuss three chapters: Introduction, Ch. 1 & 5. You’re also encouraged to watch the film The 13th by Ava DuVernay.
