Evan Osnos compassionately shares his extensive research on the crumbling of American democracy, civility, and equality. Listeners join him as he visits three diverse places he has lived: wealthy Greenwich, Connecticut; segregated Chicago; and coal-mining Clarksburg, West Virginia. He deftly interviews men and women of all ages and stations--including laborers, politicians, supervisors, clergy, and more--seeking insight into how and why things have deteriorated so badly. He movingly profiles the poor, who have suffered most because of disenfranchisement and unequal opportunities, along with a cynical investor, who changes when he realizes how the affluent are hurting the needy. Osnos is cautiously optimistic about America's future as he focuses on the strength and determination of African Americans to continue fighting for equality that is rightfully theirs.
