UU Book group for November: The New Jim Crow

We will meet from 6:30-9pm on Sunday, Nov. 17 in 101/103 to discuss The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander. With title derived from “Jim Crowe” state and local laws in the U.S. between 1876 and 1965 mandating racial segregation in all public facilities of the former Confederate south, Alexander’s book portrays a contemporary world of race-related socio-political issues, including a massive incarceration of African American and Latino males. Professor Michelle Alexander will be speaking at Purdue University November 14, 101 N. Grant St. #110, 7:00 PM. Contact Theo Moll, (703)516-4898, tmoll@kepplerspeakers.com . For further information about the UU Book Group, contact Gale Charlotte, galekchar@gmail.com.
