“More African American men are in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850, before the Civil War began,” Michelle Alexander told a standing room only house at the Pasadena Main Library.

The number of black in prison near 1 million. Why blacks contribute about half of all prison inmates when they are only 13 percent of the U.S. population is subject to much speculation. Could poverty and the lack of resources in the black community be the blame for the number of black men and women behind bars. Please join Antoinette Harr special guest Bro. Nethanel Nasi & Bro. Kojo Livington for this discussion.
