Enroll for HF4195 through TXClass.
(Diversity) The United States leads all other nations when it comes to mass incarceration, with people of color, the poor, and working class representing the largest proportion. Why is this happening and what does it have to do with Jim Crow? We will discover some of the answers as we take a closer look at mass incarceration as a part of a bigger struggle against poverty and economic inequality in the United States of America.
Learning Outcome: Participants will become aware of the impact of mass incarceration on groups of color and possible causes for this development.
