As we grapple with the realities of racism and white supremacy in our country this fall, we’ll be reading and discussing Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. We’ll also read Ta-Nehisi Coates’ bestselling memoir, Between the World and Me.
“Now and then a book comes along that might in time touch the public and educate social commentators, policymakers, and politicians about a glaring wrong that we have been living with that we also somehow don’t know how to face. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander is such a work.” — New York Review of Books
“I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language of Between the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory.” —Toni Morrison
