DLS Presents an evening with Michelle Alexander
Thursday, March 07, 2013
Varsity Hall, Union South
Michelle Alexander is a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, legal scholar and the New York Times best-selling author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. The New Jim Crow is 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.
