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

By Michelle Alexander

A modern classic, Alexander examines the role of mass incarceration in the extension of the racist policies and disenfranchisement that have kept Black men at a disadvantage in America for the last several hundred years. It’s a compelling look at how Black men in prison and on probation and parole are often denied basis civil rights in arrest, detention, imprisonment and even after they’ve paid their dues.
