THE NEW JIM CROW Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

by | Read by Karen Chilton

Contemporary Culture • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Is the United States intentionally creating a class of people whose rights are being violated in the name of public safety? Are we intentionally excluding an entire subgroup of citizens—convicted criminals, who are mainly African-American males—from participating in our democracy? This book tackles these provocative questions, and the answers are not pretty. Narrator Karen Chilton reads this work as an academic analysis and a social critique, and she succeeds on both levels. Her slightly nasal voice is calm and assured, and she paces herself so we can follow the potent arguments presented by the author. At times she sounds too professorial, a style that causes her to lose energy, but overall Chilton effectively captures the tone and intent of this important study.
