The new Jim Crow : mass incarceration in the age of colorblindness by Michelle Alexander( Book )

29 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 3,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States celebrates the nation's "triumph over race" with the election of Barack Obama, the majority of young black men in major American cities are locked behind bars or have been labeled felons for life. Although Jim Crow laws have been wiped off the books, an astounding percentage of the African American community remains trapped in a subordinate status, much like their grandparents before them, who lived under an explicit system of control.--Book jacket

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More African Americans are under 'correctional' (prison) control today than were enslaved in 1850. Why? The movie explores mass incarceration across the U.S. and the intersection of race, poverty, and the criminal justice and penal systems. It centers around Michelle Alexander's theory in her groundbreaking book, 'The New Jim Crow:' through the rise of the drug war and tough on crime policies, because discretion within the system allows for targeting people of color at disproportionately high rates, mass incarceration is the new caste system in America. The movie dissects the War on Drugs and 'tough on crime' movement, illustrates how the emerging Occupy movement offers hope for change, and explores possible reforms and solutions to ending mass incarceration and this new racial caste system"--Container

American denial( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1938, Swedish researcher and Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal plunges into America's Jim Crow South. His resulting study, An American dilemma (1944), poses a profoundly unsettling question: How can a people devoted to the American creed of equality, justice and opportunity for all continue to erect obstacles to those ends based on race? Through Myrdal's story and contemporary racial dynamics, the film explores how denial, cognitive dissonance, and implicit bias persist and shape all of our lives"--From container

Bill Moyers journal( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the months before his death, Martin Luther King, Jr. had expanded his focus on racial justice to include reducing economic inequality. What has happened to Dr. King's vision of economic justice? In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with attorneys Bryan Stevenson and Michelle Alexander-- experts in civil rights advocacy and litigation-- to discuss just how far the U.S. has come as a country, why poor and working-class Americans have fallen further behind economically, and what the nation must do to fulfill Martin Luther King's vision
The new Jim Crow study guide and call to action( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from and expanding on the themes of Michelle Alexander's acclaimed best-seller, The New Jim Crow, this in-depth guide provides a launching pad for groups wishing to engage in deep, meaningful dialogue about race, racism, and structural inequality in the age of mass incarceration. The Study Guide and Call to Action spans the entirety of The New Jim Crow, engaging the critical questions of how we managed to create, nearly overnight, a penal system unprecedented in world history, and how that system actually functions - as opposed to the way it is advertised. This important new resource also challenges us to search for and admit the truth about ourselves, our own biases, stereotypes, and misconceptions, and the many ways in which we might actually be part of the problem."--The publisher's website
