QuotesEdit

  • It shocked me and concerned me how quickly we criminalize and don’t give second chances to young men of color, and particularly young African American men…
  • I had been reading Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow, which talks about mass incarceration and mass incarceration being the new Jim Crow. But I really believe education is also the new Jim Crow right now because there is so much segregation in education, and there’s an excessive system of have and have-nots.
