A Critical and Constructive Conversation About Elite Power and Change

From interminable inequalities and injustices to culture wars, our challenges can seem intractable and our discourse stubbornly fixed. Join Bill McKibben (The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon) and Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò (Elite Capture: How the Powerful Took Over Identity Politics, and Everything Else) as they look with fresh eyes at systemic elitism in America, the roots of our current predicaments, and the urgent need to organize across our differences to fight for and reclaim a fairer future. Moderated by Ishan Desai-Geller, assistant editor at The New Press.
