This past Tuesday, we had our discussion of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in an Age of Colorblindness. It was an engaging, fruitful, discussions, and if you haven’t read this book yet, it’s a must read for anyone interested in human rights and/or criminal justice.
Now, we need another book to read, one that will be discussed in early 2013. If you have any ideas of a great human rights book that we should read next, then please either leave your suggestion in the comments or email us at amnestystl (at) gmail (dot) com. Keep in mind that the last book we read, the one we read before New Jim Crow, was The Unheard Truth: Poverty and Human Rights by Irene Kahn. So, please don’t suggest that book. Other than that, all other books having anything to do with human rights (fiction books will be considered too), are open for reading.
