Author Chuck Collins to speak at Wayne Law
January 18 2017 at 12:15 PM
Wayne State University Law School
Chuck Collins, author of Born on Third Base, will speak at Wayne State University Law School. Collins will discuss his book, racial equity and wealth disparities.  With the heart of an agitator and the soul of a storyteller, inequality expert Chuck Collins upends our assumptions about America's deep wealth divide - one that, for the first time in recent history, locks the nation's youth into a future defined by their class and wealth at birth; limits our ability to address crises like climate change; and creates a world that no one, not even the rich, will ultimately want to live in. In Born on Third Base, Collins calls for an end to class war, busts the myths that define our views of rich and poor, and offers bold new solutions for bridging the economic divide and re-engaging the wealthy in rebuilding communities for a resilient future. https://www.marketplace.org/2016/12/07/world/ending-inequality-america-task-all Lunch provided.
