The New Jim Crow

Mass Incarceration In An Age Of Colorblindness

BY MICHELE ALEXANDER

Brief Description:
"The New Jim Crow" was initially published with a modest first printing and reasonable expectations for a hard-hitting book on a tough topic. Now, ten-plus printings later, the long-awaited paperback version of the book is available. Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans. Once you're labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination--employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits are suddenly legal. We have sold 100's to Quakers already.

New Press 2012 336 PP. Paper
