The New Jim Crow

WHY ARE SO MANY YOUNG AFRICAN-AMERICAN MALES INCARCERATED? AS CHRISTIANS, WE SHOULD BE HORRIFIED BY THE FAILURE OF SUCH A LARGE SEGMENT OF OUR POPULATION TO THRIVE. GOD WANTS ALL HIS CHILDREN TO LIVE LIVES OF DIGNITY AND MEANING. OUR FIRST STEP IS TO EDUCATE OURSELVES ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. READ THE BOOK AND JOIN THE CONVERSATION. ALL ARE WELCOME!

The mass incarceration of young African-American men is a national scandal. Meanwhile, every week we read about a new example of excessive force by police against African-American men in everyday life. Out of the conflict of Ferguson, Mo., new energy has been given to the ongoing blight of racism and the struggle for equal civil rights for all. What can you do? The first step is to be educated. Read the book and come to the discussion at our Forum. Nov. 2, 9:45 AM
