Course Description

The online book studies are offered to anyone who has a sincere interest to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the systemic issues that plague the USA around race, class and marginalized groups and who care deeply about social justice. Each book study addresses current issues in society and allow opportunities for participants to reflect, discuss and hear multiple perspectives that can lead to greater understanding and empathy.

In this book study participants will explore the work of legal scholar Michelle Alexander that focuses on the targeting of black men in the US legal system. Specifically looking at how through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control—relegating millions to a permanent second-class status—even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness.
