Brooklyn Voices Series at St. Joseph’s College
Chris Hayes presents A Colony in a Nation
In conversation with Wesley Lowery
Tickets $30 (includes seat and book)
At Tuohy Hall
In his new book, New York Times bestselling author and Emmy Award–winning news anchor Chris Hayes argues that there are really two Americas: a Colony and a Nation. In the Nation, we venerate the law. In the Colony, policing resembles occupation. How and why did Americans build a system where conditions in Ferguson and West Baltimore mirror those that sparked the American Revolution? Hayes talks about the deep racial inequalities in America’s approach to justice with fellow journalist Wesley Lowery, whose 2016 book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice Movement offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on the Black Lives Matter movement.
