President's Task Force on Inclusive Excellence and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Observance Speaker

Michelle Alexander
The New York Times Best-Selling Author, Legal Scholar and Social Justice Advocate

Michelle Alexander offers powerful insights on mass incarceration in the United States, as well as eye-opening conversation on how we can end the racial caste system in America.

In her acclaimed best-seller, "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness," Alexander peels back the curtain on systemic racism in the American prison system. The New York Review of Books said the book is "striking in the intelligence of her ideas, her powers of summary and the force of her writing."

Alexander, a legal scholar, social justice advocate and visiting professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York, employs equal force on stage to call for a multi-racial, multi-ethnic human rights movement for justice in America.
