November’s DEI Book Club Pick
“Reforms that supposedly improve the current system run the risk of entrenching dangerous, violent, racist, classist, ableist, oppressive institutions–making them even harder to uproot. When captivity is perceived as kinder and gentler, it becomes more acceptable and less of an urgent priority to confront, even though it continues to destroy countless lives.” – Prison by Any Other Name: The Harmful Consequences of Popular Reforms
This month the DEI Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health, will discuss Prison by Any Other Name: The Harmful Consequences of Popular Reforms by Maya Schenwar and Victoria Law as its November read.
The Book Club will discuss Prison by Any Other Name on Zoom on Friday, November 18th at 12pm. If you’d like to read and take part in the event, the Library provides access to an eBook version through EBSCO.
