Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston - Among my favorite books. A wonderful tale of love, loss, and finding oneself. Also love Hurston for her anthropological work in the American South, the Caribbean, and Central America.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, http://www.amazon.com/dp/1595581030/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_yM4Eqb08EDQD5
Legal scholar and civil rights advocate Michelle Alexander argues in her book, "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness," that although Jim Crow laws have been eliminated, the racial caste system it set up was not eradicated. It’s simply been redesigned, and now racial control functions through the criminal justice system. She discussed her book on Democracy Now! on March 11, 2010.
The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, by Michelle Alexander, makes the argument that crime-fighting policies and systems in the U.S., such as the “war on drugs” and the incarceration system, disproportionately and intentionally affect Americans of color. She describes multifaceted, lifelong discrimination and disenfranchisement that affect people who are branded “felon.” The 2012-2013 UUA Common Read
New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness (Revised) / Michelle Alexander ~ In this incisive critique, a former litigator provocatively argues that we have not ended racial caste in America: we redesigned it. Alexander shows that, by targeting black men and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, even as it formally adheres to the principle of color blindness.
The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Michelle Alexander. The New Jim Crow was initially published with a modest first printing and reasonable expectations for a hard-hitting book on a tough topic. Now, ten-plus printings later, the long-awaited paperback version of the book Lani Guinier calls “brave and bold,” and Pulitzer Prize–winner David Levering Lewis calls “stunning,” will at last be available.

Chesya Burke is winning lots of buzz for her poetic short stories, which deal with race and weirdness in the heart of small town America. And now we've got an exclusive excerpt from her new story collection, Let's Play White. This excerpt comes from the novella, "The Teachings and Redemption of Ms. Fannie Lou Mason," via her publisher, Apex Books.
Let's Play White by Chesya Burke, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XRALF0/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_pboMsb0VMB5B6
by Chesya Burke, Gritty and sublime, the stories of Let's Play White feature real people facing the worlds they're given, bringing out the best and the worst of what it means to be human. If you're ready to slip into someone else's skin for a while, then it's time to come play white. From the spectrum spanning despair and hope in "What She Saw When They Flew Away" to the stark weave of personal struggles in "Chocolate Park," Let's Play White speaks with the voices of the overlooked and unheard.

The Hidden Cost of Being African American: How Wealth Perpetuates Inequality by Thomas M. Shapiro
soulbrotherv2: The Hidden Cost of Being African American: How Wealth Perpetuates Inequality by Thomas M. Shapiro Over the past three decades, racial prejudice in America has declined significantly and many African American families have seen a steady rise in employment and annual income. But alongside these encouraging signs, Thomas Shapiro argues in The Hidden Cost of Being African American, fundamental levels of racial inequality persist, particularly in the area of asset accumulation—inheritance, savings accounts, stocks, bonds, home equity, and other investments. Shapiro reveals how the lack of these family assets along with continuing racial discrimination in crucial areas like homeownership dramatically impact the everyday lives of many black families, reversing gains earned in schools and on jobs, and perpetuating the cycle of poverty in which far too many find themselves trapped.
