Event

Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series Luncheon with Issac Jay Bailey, My Brother Moochie
My Brother Moochie with Issac J. Bailey: Crime Poverty & Racism in South--New Book from Harvard Nieman Fellow & Marshall Project Contributor

A rare first-person account that combines a journalists skilled reporting with the raw emotion of a younger brothers heartfelt testimony of what his family endured for decades after his eldest brother killed a man and was sentenced to life in prison.

At the age of nine, Issac J. Bailey saw his hero, his eldest brother, taken away in handcuffs, not to return from prison for thirty-two years. Bailey tells the story of their relationship and of his experience living in a family suffering guilt and shame. Drawing on sociological research as well as his expertise as a journalist, he seeks to answer the crucial question of why Moochie and many other young black menincluding half of the ten boys in his own familyend up in the criminal justice system. What role did poverty, race, and faith play? What effect did living in the South, in the Bible Belt, have? And why is their experience understood as an acceptable trope for black men, while white people who commit crimes are never seen in this generalized way?

My Brother Moochie provides a wide-ranging yet intensely intimate view of crime and incarceration in the United States, and the devastating effects on the incarcerated, their loved ones, their victims, and society as a whole.

Books are provided by Blue Bicycle Books, an independent bookstore and staple in the downtown Charleston community selling new, used and rare books in the fashionable Upper King Street District.

There will be no refunds issued after 9:00 p.m. the day before the event because we commit to and pay for every luncheon ordered.
