“Broken on All Sides: Race, Mass Incarceration, and New Visions for Criminal Justice in the U.S.”

September 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

(Film showing hosted by the Common Reading Program)

This documentary centers around author and law professor Michelle Alexander’s theory, presented in her book The New Jim Crow, that mass incarceration is a new caste system in America that is enacted through the rise of the drug war, “tough on crime” policies, discretion and bias in policing and sentencing, and the legal discrimination of those with criminal records in almost every aspect of citizenship. See for more on this film. Common Reading Stamp available.
