Abstract: 
"A Call to Action is a poignant and uncompromising analysis of the criminal/justice system which spends millions of dollars annually, and controls the lives of approximately one million inmates--of which nearly two-thirds are Black and members of other non-white groups. Of particular concern is the over-representation of Black men who traverse the criminal justice system as though it was especially designed for them."
