The New Jim Crow: by Michelle Alexander | Conversation Starters

When Barack Obama won the presidency in 2009, the world thought that America has finally won over racial discrimination. Legal scholar and civil rights lawyer Michelle Alexander however realizes that this is far from the truth. The New Jim Crow is an exposition of how America has created a caste system through the mass incarceration of blacks who are imprisoned through harsh drug laws. Just like the Jim Crow laws that rendered blacks second-class citizens in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, today’s incarcerated blacks are prevented by the criminal legal system from taking advantage of the their economic, political and social rights as American citizen. 

Published in 2010, the book was on The New York Times bestseller list for over a year. It is the 2011 NAACP Image Award for best nonfiction.
