Event Details

The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present a talk on film, “Michelle Alexander: The Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” (50 min.), Thursday, Nov. 8, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ashland Library, Community Room, 66 Front St. The event is free and open to the public.

Michelle Alexander is a writer, civil rights advocate, visiting professor at Union Theological Seminary and author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.

In this talk, Alexander presents the evidence for her central thesis that mass incarceration functions as a stunningly comprehensive and well-disguised system of racial control analogous in many ways to Jim Crow.
