Our Class

Politics and Prose welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges to speak about his new book "Our Class".

The author will be joined in conversation with Boris Franklin, a graduate of Rutgers University, who was incarcerated for eleven years and who was one of the principal authors of the play Caged, written by Chris Hedges' first class at East Jersey State Prison.

The new book by Chris Hedges exposes the terrible crucible and injustice of America's penal system and the struggle by those trapped within its embrace to live lives of dignity, meaning, and purpose.
