The New Jim Crow study group

Our study group for this book will take place on first Thursdays, March 2, April 6 and May 4 at 6:45 pm. Last fall we postponed our study of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in an Age of Colorblindness. On the first Thursday evening of the next four months we will take a break from our regularly scheduled Bible study to consider these issues. As theologian Karl Barth is reported to have said, “with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other.” The book is widely available, and we ask that you arrive at the first session having read the introduction and first chapter. For more information, please speak to Mother Liz.
