100 days letters DAY  

Read the New Jim Crow or listen to an interview with author and former ACLU attorney Michelle Alexander

“Today there are more African-Americans under correctional control — in prison or jail, on probation or parole — than were enslaved in 1850, a decade before the Civil War began.”- Michelle Alexander

For #100DaysTN, listen to former ACLU attorney Michelle Alexander discuss her book, “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness,” and her argument that America’s mass incarceration system is actually a new legal caste system: http://www.npr.org/2012/01/16/145175694/legal-scholar-jim-crow-still-exists-in-america
