A discussion guide for The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, selected as the 2012–2013 Unitarian Universalist Association Common Read, is now available. Created by UUA staff, the guide is intended to help groups reflect on the book and consider how to respond to author Michelle Alexander’s call for awareness and action. The discussion guide is adaptable for congregational, cluster, or district programming for adults of all ages. Two formats are offered: A single 90-minute session and three 90-minute sessions. Download a free copy.

The UUA Bookstore is supporting this Common Read with a 10 percent discount on orders of 5–9 books and 20 percent off of orders of 10 or more books. The New Jim Crow is also available online as an e-book and in public libraries.
