Rev. Marlin Lavanhar on Trayvon Martin and the New Jim Crow

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
