Books to read:

  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Book by Michelle Alexander

 The New Jim Crow is a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. Since its publication in 2010, the book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year. ( http://newjimcrow.com/about )

  •  Islam and the Blackamerican: Looking Toward The Third Resurrection by Sherman A. Jackson
