The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander is the 2012-13 Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Common Read.
Alexander, an attorney and civil rights advocate, asserts that crime-fighting policies and systems in the U.S., such as the "war on drugs" and the incarceration system, disproportionately and intentionally affect Americans of color.
