Connecting the Dots for a Better World | Common Dreams

Connecting the Dots for a Better World | Common Dreams



The 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
this past summer produced some brilliant commentary about the legacy of
Martin Luther King Jr. One of the sharpest of these was a short essay
that Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness,
posted to her Facebook page. We want to quote at length from this essay
because we think that it holds valuable—even essential—lessons for
those of us working to defend and improve public schools.
