SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode, we explore the fifth chapter of Michelle Alexander's book and consider the parallels between the current practice of mass incarceration of black and brown people and the former Jim Crow legal system that effectively made second-class citizens of African Americans.
When the Republican Party loses an election, they go to their bag of dirty tricks to fix things for themselves. We all thought Jim Crow was dead and buried, but some of the laws that were around from Reconstruction are trying to come back. In this week's episode of The Ant Canery Experience, we will talk about this and discuss what we need to do to counter the right's dirty tricks. Join me for another great as we drop some knowledge. Peace and Blessings.

The new Jim Crow has nothing to do with "race" or the "sex" of a person...........the new Jim Crow to a very high degree is "Law Illiteracy". Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss how being illiterate in "basic law" can lead to many problems including incarseration, evictions, forclosure, divorces, etc. etc.
Education is power and we shall give people the basics on what they need to do to empower themselves to reverse any negative situation that they may be involved in.
Many members and friends of Unitarian Universalist congregations are reading The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, the current Common Read of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Over the course of eight episodes, this radioblog is a chapter-by-chapter exploration of the themes of the book, from the perspectives of scholars, actvists, lawyers and people of faith grappling with Alexander's central message: "By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control -- relegating milions to permanent second-class status -- even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness."
The hosts for the New Jim Crow Radioblog are Carlton Elliott Smith, one of the ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (VA), and Alex Boston, one of its members.
The New Jim Crow RadioBlog is brought to you by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (VA), Davies Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church (Camp Springs, MD), Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church (Burke, VA), All Souls Church, Unitarian (Wash., DC), and the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore.

Edward-Yemíl Rosario (Eddie), Was recently an Associate director for the Correctional Association’s Prison visiting project and before that, the project director for the Fifth Avenue Committee’s Developing Justice project. Eddie holds a BS degree in Applied Psychology from New York University and attended Columbia University’s School of Social Work. Deeply interested in understanding the mechanisms that assist people in effecting lasting change, Eddie views the synergy between knowledge and action as crucial to human development. Mr. Rosario’s own experiences as a formerly incarcerated person have contributed to his passion for changing criminal justice policies and helping people move their lives in a positive direction and explore opportunities that would otherwise be closed to them.
A mere 2% (3,125) of the Counties in the United States are responsible for 50% of the executions and death penalty sentencing .
"The Cruel Hand" (Chapter 4 in The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander) considers how the criminal justice system operates once a prisoner is released. The legalized discrimination and social stigmatization that follow prevent the formerly incarcerated from re-integrating into society and erode social structures within African-American communities.
