Join a SURJ Reading Group of Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

Join a SURJ Reading Group of Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness 

SURJ will be organizing another round of political education using The New Jim Crow. To sign up, send an email to surjreads@gmail.com

You will read about 100 pages every two weeks for eight weeks in total, beginning the week of March 6th. Every two weeks, the Basebuilding Committee will send you a list of discussion questions, links to current stories and events related to mass incarceration, and ways for you to engage in the resistance. 

The Basebuilding Committee will also organize an in-person discussion and debrief of the text. If you’d like to organize your own reading group around The New Jim Crow, let us know at surjreads@gmail.com.
