This is the second faculty-led discussion of the New York Times bestseller The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander.

"Michelle Alexander argues convincingly that the huge disparity of punishment in America is not mere result of neutral state action. She sees the rise of mass incarceration as opening up a new front in the historic struggle for racial justice. And she's right. If you cre about justice in America, you need to read this book!"

-- Glenn C Loury, professor of economics, Brown University
