Event Details

Friends of the Library invite you to attend on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 12:00 p.m., for the Noon Book Review. Daryl Hubbard, Jackson City Court Clerk, will be discussing his latest book The Decarceration of Black America.

Daryl Hubbard was born in the inner-city of Detroit, Michigan and is a product of the Detroit Public School System. He attended Knoxville College in Knoxville, Tennessee and was employed at the Tennessee School for the Deaf in Knoxville before moving to Jackson in 1986 to open the West TN School for the Deaf. While working at the school, he was employed as an interpreter for the Jackson Madison County School System and was a guest columnist for the Jackson Sun.
He has served as the Jackson City Court Clerk since 1998 and is serving his fifth consecutive term. He is an avid reader and an active volunteer in the community

Mr. Hubbard is the author of three books: Hiding the Signs, A Plethora of Ignorance and his latest book, The Decarceration of Black America which takes a look at the prison industrial complex and its effect on poor people and people of color. It offers strategies for breaking the prisons of the mind in order to transcend society’s structural impediments.

“The Decarceration of Black America is a deafening shot across the bough of black conservative thought. Hubbard unapologetically criticizes black Americans for their lack of self-determination while courageously examining America’s racist past and her oppressive criminal justice system. This groundbreaking work is a philosophical treatise, a self-help book and a reference guide. More importantly, it is a declaration of love.” Said James E Cherry, author of Edge of the Wind and a local Jackson author.

Bring a sack lunch and enjoy desserts provided by the Friends of the Library during the review.
