Short Description: 
Police infiltration of radical movements-- really? They do that? Listen in for a lively discussion!

Lyn and ani's guest will be Peg Millett, environmental activist, and member of the so-called Arizona Five

In 1989, Peg was arrested with other Earth Firsters in a sting operation, and served three years without parole.

With rumors flying about the resurgence of police / FBI infiltration and entrapment practices to break movements, we thought it is important to look at this piece of very relevant history, and see what lessons can be gained.

Michelle Alexander and the New Jim Crow

We take a look at mass incarceration and racism in America today through Michelle Alexander's book "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness."

We begin with a speech given by Michelle Alexander in New York in February of 2010, and then will hear from various community members who participated in a Book Group at the Talking Drum Bookstore, located in Reflections coffee shop on NE Killingsworth. This group is going through the book in six weeks, chapter by chapter, to study how and why a majority of young Black men in major American cities are locked behind bars and how  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.
