BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : 1 in 3 BLACK MEN GO TO PRISON : WHY ?? OR IS IT THE NEW FORM OF PLANTATION SLAVERY ???
March 17th this month the United States celebrates the Selma to Montgomery marches of 195 to commemorate our shared history of the Civil Rights Movement and our nation continued progress towards racial equality. Yet decades later a broken Criminal Justice System has proven that we have a long way to go in achieving racial equality. Today people of color continue to be disproportionately incarcerated, policed and sentenced to death at significantly higher rates than there white counterparts. Further racial disparities in the criminal justice system threaten communities of color- disenfranchising thousand by limiting voting rights and denying equal equal access to employment, housing, public benefits and education to millions more.
