Today we heard #michellealexander and #Marian Wright Edelman speak. My daughters sat in the same room as 2 women who are drastically changing the country. We sat in the presence of some of the greatest minds of our times. We heard them speak out the #prisontoschoolpipeline #newjimcrow and several other issues. They were honest. They were passionate. They spoke from their core and addressed the very issues that tackle all who look like me. This weekend is nothing short amazing! #umwassembly2018 #mommysings #liveoutyourlegacy

Damn. Read this book. THE NEW JIM CROW by Michelle Alexander: “We have allowed ourselves to be willfully blind to the emergence of a new caste system- a system of social ex-communication that has denied millions of African Americans basic human dignity. The significance of this cannot be overstated, for the failure to acknowledge the humanity & dignity of all persons has lurked at the root of every racial caste system.” #massincarceration #peopleoverprofits #thenewjimcrow #michellealexander

• from The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander • Chapter 2, pg 56: “Clinton chose to fly home to Arkansas to oversee the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a mentally impaired black man who had so little conception of what was about to happen to him that he asked for the dessert from his last meal to be saved for him until the morning. After the execution, Clinton remarked, ‘I can be nicked a lot, but no one can say I’m soft on crime.’”

From #slavery, to #jimcrow, to #redlining, to #thewarondrugs, leading to #massincarceration. Slavery was never abolished. The 13th amendment has a clause stating that slavery is abolished except when one is convicted of a crime.
As long as this clause stands, slavery still exists. This shirt displays the Roman numeral XIII standing for the 13th amendment, showing a man behind bars representing the slavery of mass incarceration that disproportionately affects #minority groups.
Substantial portion of profit goes to assist previously incarcerated men and women to find employment, housing, and rehabilitation. #forgiveeveryone

#thenewjimcrow by #michellealexander
Oooooohhhh GET FIRED UP!!! This book is dense nonfiction and usually that and me reading it do not belong in the same sentence, but damnit this book NEEDS reading. Published in 2010, so don’t expect the comparative dialogue between crack/cocaine war on drugs and todays Opioid Epidemic. But I would warn you that it’s gonna piss you off. It’s gonna educate you on further injustices being enacted on the black and brown communities. One little factoid that I’ll leave for you as food for thought and inspiration to read is thus... 5g of Crack gets you a minimum 5 year prison sentence. Conversely it takes 500g of Cocaine to invoke a 5 year minimum sentence. I’m sorry but WHAT?!? You might think you’re absent from social bias, but when you finish this book you’ll find that you unconscious bias is the silent killer in your mind. Keep educating yourselves. Keep your eyes open, your ears honed, and your minds sharp. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“Historians will likely wonder how we could describe the new caste system as a system of crime control, when it is difficult to imagine a system better designed to create-rather than prevent- crime.” Michelle Alexander

The New Jim Crow: powerful and deeply disturbing examination of the racial nature of America’s war on drugs and mass incarceration as a means of social control. Alexander has done a great service to this country in writing this book. The burden is now on us to do something about it. #michellealexander #thenewjimcrow #massincarceration #criminaljusticereform #booklover #books #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #reading #igbooks #igreads

Meet Michelle Alexander. 🗣️
A civil rights lawyer, advocate and educator, Michelle has dedicated her career to researching the intersections of race within the criminal justice system. A professor at Stanford University and Ohio State University, she’s served as the director of the Racial Justice Project at the ACLU in Northern California spearheading national campaigns against racial profiling. Her book ‘The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness’ explores mass incarceration and structural racism, and gained national attention. She’s been featured on several talk shows and works to make sure we recognize the intersections of race, class and gender and why these should be factors every feminist should be concerned about. #michellealexander #massincarceration #feminist #thenewjimcrow

Very excited for Afrikanah Book Club’s May read: The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander! It’s absolutely a must-read.✊🏾✨


The goal of Afrikanah Book Club is to facilitate a space where young black women 
can gather socially and grow intellectually 
through the exploration of literature produced by black women and literary works with strong black female 
characters and subject matters.

Last Tuesday, I dedicated an entire lesson on discussing #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness with my #college #students . We gathered in a #circle in all three #classes after watching a segment from #michellealexander and #patrissecullors #thespiritofjustice @unionseminary talking about the mass incarceration of Black men and how they are caught in drug wars as children and the #mentalillness that exist in our communities. I gave personal accounts of the #mentalillness that exists in my own family and it gave my students permission to open up about their families. It was the most powerful class of this #semester . Not an easy #dialogue by any stretch of the #imagination . After class I needed some #selfcare so I went for a long walk around the lake and took #time to #think #process #talk #meditate #cry #pray and of course #laughoutloud after this guy #photobomb me. I saw it as God's way of bringing joy to my heart after a four intense hours and sitting with over sixty students and hearing the ways in which #mentalillness has impacted their lives. Let's keep having discussions about this folks. We can no longer sweep this under the rug like it doesn't exist or like somehow it will go away if we ignore it. Things don't just disappear because we choose to ignore them...they only get worse. Let's be #willing #intentional #educate ourselves so we can #help those we love rather than #demonize them. I hope this helps someone as much as it did me. @michellealexander @thenewjimcrow @osopepatrisse thank you both for the work you have done and are doing for our brothers and sisters alike who have no one to advocate for them. #wearethevoiceforthevoiceless

I’m normally into fiction, though I’m making an effort to read more nonfiction. This is my current read. 👀 I would love some nonfiction suggestions. What do I need to read? What has changed your mind, expanded your world view, challenged your beliefs, helped you be a better person?

This post is about a couple things.
1. Spring might finally be here. Summer soon come. I’m excited about this.
2. I have a new blog post about some interesting topics at Columbia. Specifically being a student of color there and how it relates to Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow.” Granted its a little long but, it’s worth it.
3. This photo is from a trip to the Whitney Museum to see an exhibit called “An Incomplete History of Protest” which is somewhat fitting for the blog post topic.
4. Lastly, color blindness is erasure. Think about that. 🙆🏾‍♀️ • #tbt #vscocam #whitneymuseum #anincompletehistoryofprotest #exhibit #think #colorblindness #isnotathing #newblogpost #blackgirlswhoblog #columbiauniversity #protest #debate #thingstothinkabout #michellealexander #thenewjimcrow
