Zócalo at the Hammer: The New Jim Crow
Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
A longtime civil rights advocate and litigator, Michelle Alexander served as the director of the Racial Justice Project for the ACLU of Northern California, which spearheaded a national campaign against racial profiling by law enforcement. Alexander holds a joint appointment at the Moritz College of Law and the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University in Columbus. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness is her first book.
Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.
Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
