Book Recomendation: "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in an Agoe of Colorblindness"


There are many wonderful books you can read on these topics. I would like to make some suggestions based on books I have read in the last few years. If you haven’t read them, I encourage you to. The first book I think all NAACP members should read is “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” by Michelle Alexander.

The paperback edition of the book was published in 2012. It was a book that changed the way many Americans saw their country, and helped to create a movement to change the many injustices that exist. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “The Bible of a Social Movement.” Cornell West said it is a must-read for all people of conscience. This book is a “call to action”.

Some issues are presently being dealt with, but there is still so much work that needs to be done to make our country a better place for people of all races to live—but especially for the young black men who have been unfairly targeted for so long.
