A Conversation with 2013 Stowe Prize Winner Michelle Alexander

Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

February 28, 2018

Michelle Alexander is author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. The New Jim Crow tells a truth our nation has been reluctant to face.
