 The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness is the title of a new book by longtime civil rights advocate and litigator, Michelle Alexander.  In this episode of the Old Mole's The Left and the Law, attorney Mike Snedeker and Jan Haaken sum up and discuss the book's central thesis: that the mass imprisonment of black men for crimes that go mostly unpunished among whites has created a new form of racial segregation.  

Michelle Alexander will appear soon on KBOO's A Deeper Look
