[wpfilebase tag=fileurl id=527 linktext=’Study Guide for The New Jim Crow’ /]
The Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Reparations Committee has prepared [wpfilebase tag=fileurl id=527 linktext=’this examination and study guide’ /] of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, as an offering to parishes and congregations in observance of Lent. It is also a response to resolution A183 enacted at the 78th General Convention last fall, which recommended a book study of the Triennium.
The five (5)- week study is designed as a navigational tool to help facilitate larger conversations about mass incarceration, race in society, and other related issues, within the diocese starting at the parish level. This guide will help your congregation discuss, comprehend, and respond to Alexander’s work while connecting with parishioners’ personal experiences, the Episcopal Church, and the Bible. While the Lenten Season is an ideal time to engage in this exercise, we ask that church communities respond to the Resolution when it is most convenient and you can best maximize the dialogue for your own congregation.
