“This groundbreaking book illuminates black Americans’ lingering suspicions of the criminal justice system.

Blackmon’s exhaustive reportage should put an end to the oft-repeated slander that black Americans tend toward lawlessness.” – See more at:http://www.slaverybyanothername.com/the-book/reviews/more-reviews/#sthash.V3jkoOXH.dpuf
