Race, Mass Incarceration & New Visions for Criminal Justice in the U.S.

Sunday, February 15, 2015

6:00 pm

P&J Center, 96 Harlow Street, Suite 100

 

Broken on All Sides

This documentary proposes the theory that mass incarceration has become “The New Jim Crow,”  due to  the rise of the drug war and discretion within the system that allows for arrest and prosecution of people of color at alarmingly higher rates than whites.  Much of the discrimination that is illegal today when applied to black people is perfectly legal when applied to “criminals.”  People of color are targeted at significantly higher rates for stops, searches, arrests, and prosecution, and receive harsher sentences.
