An engaged and near-capacity group of about 75 people gathered at the C. Burr Artz Community Room on Sunday, March 29, to watch a video of author Michelle Alexander talking about how she came to write The New Jim Crow and to discuss our response to her presentation. Participants came from Frederick Friends Meeting, at least six other faith communities in Frederick, and several other Maryland Friends Meetings. Community leaders and the Frederick City Police department were also represented.
