Join the Detroit Democratic Socialists of America chapter for our second book club meeting as we discuss the last chapters of "The New Jim Crow" at The Bottom Line Coffee House in Detroit. FREE ELECTRONIC COPY OF BOOK (for educational purposes only) https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_akx02w9nqDaHVfeXNidFI2ZnM BOOK TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWvEfg8bVB4 PURCHASE BOOK: http://newjimcrow.com/about/buy 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. Since its publication in 2010, the book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year; been dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” by numerous commentators, including Cornel West; and has led to consciousness-raising efforts in universities, churches, community centers, re-entry centers, and prisons nationwide. The New Jim Crow tells a truth our nation has been reluctant to face.
