Project Censored: Chris Hedges

Dec 07, 2021: 7pm - 8pm

Author Chris Hedges also teaches college-level courses for New Jersey state prison inmates. His new book, "Our Class," explains what happened when Hedges taught a dramatic-literature course to inmates, then helped them write a play of their own -- "Caged" -- based on their personal life events. As well, the inmates' stories illustrate the many cruelties of life in an American prison. Chris Hedges spoke at a KPFA/Project Censored Zoom event on November 18; this week's program presents excerpts from that talk.
