This event is sold out. There will be a standby line at the door. «A Colony in a Nation» by Emmy Award–winning MSNBC news anchor and New York Times best-selling author Chris Hayes (Twilight of the Elites) describes an America that is suffering from an identity crisis. We view ourselves as a developed nation, ruled by law and order. Yet, in large swathes of our country, the general mindset is more provincial; fear trumps civil rights and aggressive policing resembles occupation. Hayes draws comparisons between modern-day communities in places like Ferguson and West Baltimore and those of colonial America. He disputes the notion of a post-racial world and argues that racial inequality hasn’t improved since 1968 by all empirical measures―wealth, unemployment, incarceration, school segregation. Hayes breaks down the issues and impacts of our country’s lack of self-awareness and the ways in which it threatens our democracy.
