My Reading List

 

1. An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

"Laying out a deceptively simple story about a marriage and the criminal justice system, Jones weaves in powerful emotions of love, loss, and resilience."

2. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander

"With deft and straightforward prose, Michelle Alexander lays out the intersection of law and power in the creation and enforcement of America's "racial caste system"--an essential read for any student of American history and politics."

3. When They Call You a Terrorist by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele

"We live in a time of hashtag social justice, often disconnected from the organizers who lead these movements--this memoir, from one of the founders of #BlackLivesMatter, is a compelling, deeply powerful glimpse into her story and her motivations to fight for justice."
