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

A Very Important Read

In this well-researched book, Michelle Alexander breaks down all the ways in which our legal system hold back & tear down African American men. She proves without a doubt the 'birdcage' that we, our community, our Politicians, our Police, our Judges, and our lawyers have built law by law, around African American men & their community. It's heartbreaking & it's real. A must read for anyone who cares about Racial Justice.
