Michelle Alexander to Union Theological Seminary

In a move that signals something interesting about the way we think about criminal justice, Michelle Alexander is going to serve for the next five years as a Visiting Professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York. According to Union, Alexander (best known for her book The New Jim Crow) will both teach and "engage in directed study in consultation with Union faculty to provide her with a strong theological foundation for her work at Union and beyond."

I think this is a really exciting development, one that will move the discussion of criminal law reform towards a faith that should seek change and has the ability to bring great resources to bear.
