Register 04/02/2017 4:00 pm 04/02/2017 5:30 pm America/Los_Angeles The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness Book/Discussion Group

  Mass incarceration is a means of violent social control inflicted on communities of color and especially the Black community. Join us as we explore how the so-called “War on Drugs” has been used to demean, degrade and control people of color in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Cornel West has called The New Jim Crow “the secular bible for the new social movement in early twenty-first-century America. He goes on to say that it “shifts our attention from the racial symbol of America’s achievement to the actual substance of America’s shame: the massive use of state power to incarcerate hundreds of thousands of precious poor, black, male (and increasingly female) young people in the name of the bogus ‘War on Drugs.’” Join us in a multi-part series to discuss this important book. The series continues Sunday, April 2 from 4:00 to 5:30. The last meeting will be April 23. If you have questions or would like information about the material to be covered at the next meeting, contact Fred Matthews at 206.935.3038 or by at seafam2010@gmail.com.
