During an age of colorblindness, this book is a call to action far too important and powerful to dismiss.

Michelle Alexander has written a book that will continue to shake the nation as it reaches more and more readers across the country. The New Jim Crow exposes us to the methods of racial control that still thrive in the United States. Alexander’s words ring loud and clear as they explain the ways in which the racial caste system has merely shifted and evolved rather than disappeared. While many claim we are living in a time of colorblindness, she argues the various ways in which communities of color are still being systematically destroyed with a special focus on the legal system’s unrelenting pursuit of black men. This book will give you a whole new perspective of the War on Drugs that you will not be able to ignore. I recommend this book to everyone I meet. What you will read is transformative of the way we think and see those in the world around us and demands to interrupt a most pervasive and devastating kind of ignorance. This information is essential for everyone who cares for the well-being of humankind, from those who have never been exposed to the most knowledgeable of social activists.
