Human Rights and Racial Justice in the US: A conversation with Michelle Alexander, author of “The New Jim Crow”

  • Booth Auditorium Berkeley, CA (map)

Historically the movement for racial justice in the United States has advocated for “civil rights” and largely ignored international “human rights.” Despite the victories secured through the domestic legal agenda of the civil rights movement, its vision for racial equity remains elusive. Alexander will discuss why a deep commitment to human rights and human dignity — not just civil rights — must be central to all social movements that aim to challenge racial disparities and structural inequity in the United States.
