What You Will Learn

In this study, we will discuss Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow in which she argues that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control—relegating millions to a permanent second-class status—even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness.

This Course Includes Facilitation
This course is facilitated by an instructor who will interact and grade required assignments. There are interactive discussions, readings, writing and a graded quiz at the end of the course. A letter grade from the designated university parters chosen will be issued. This version of the course should ONLY be taken if you are seeking graduate credits from Seattle Pacific University or Professional Development Units (PDU’s) from Brandman University.

Prior to enrolling it is necessary for you to decide which version of the course you need to take depending on your desired outcome. If you are looking for graduate credits visit the section “Seattle Pacific University”  or if you are seeking PDU’s visit the section “Brandman University”. Both provide access to courses that are facilitated by an instructor who will issue grades.

If you are seeking a certificate of completion and do not require facilitation, you can access the courses in the open enrollment section of our “All Courses” page. These courses are self paced and without instructor facilitation. Prior to enrolling it is necessary for you to decide which version of the course you need to take depending on your desired outcome.
