Welcome. to Live Talk with Odie Hawkiins. Odie Hawkins has been given the title, “The Underground Master”, by a loyal constituency. We'll delve into Odie's impressive body of work in a little while. But Odie just finished a book and I'm anxious to hear Odie talk about the latest book he's read...

So today's show features Odie discussing his take on The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander.

Following are three reviews on the book: "An explosive debut...alarming, provocative, and convincing."-Kirkus Reviews

"Carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable." -Publishers Weekly

"Now and then a book comes along that might in time touch the public and educate social commentators, policymakers, and politicians about a glaring wrong that we have been living with that we also somehow don't know how to face. Then New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander is such a work." -The New York Review of Books

Odie just read it. Let's hear what he has to say about the book.

So Hello, to the One and Only Underground Master!, Odie Hawkins!
