With permission I share this comment by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar on the national response to his recent sermon on the shooting of Trayvon Martin and the book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Era of Colorblindness. I hope you’ll watch and share both Marlin’s sermon (below) and Alexander’s book.
“The national reaction to this sermon has been huge. Much of the info comes from Michele Alexander’s book: “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Era of Colorblindness”. I think it is the most important book on race in America in a generation. Please read it! “ – Rev. Marlin Lavanhar
