Ann Arbor Ypsilanti Reads 2013 Book Discussion
Tuesday February 19, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Traverwood Branch: Program Room
Join us for an open discussion of the book that is the focus of this year's Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads - "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration In The Age Of Colorblindness" by Michelle Alexander.
This discussion, led by Ann Arbor District Library staff, will examine this stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status--denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement.
This event is for adults and teens (grade 9 and up).
