Human Rights Day: "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness"
The these for the 15th Annual Rochester Commemoration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was based on a book written by Michelle Alexander: "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness." Speakers included Ream Kidane with a call for solidarity and action, Dr. Marvin McMickle giving the Keynote Address, and Rosemary Rivera, Ricardo Adams, and Maurice Miller--dedicated activists and community members--sitting on a panel relating their experiences of mass incarceration. The event took place at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church (121 N. Fitzhugh St.) in Rochester, NY on December 10, 2012. Part I has the Call to Solidarity and Action and Part 2 has the panelists and the audience Q&A.
