Book Discussion with Chris Hayes of MSBNC's "All In with Chris Hayes"
Start Date: 5/21/2017Start Time: 6:45 PM
End Date: 5/21/2017End Time: 7:45 PM
Event Description:

Lehman College, in partnership with Dream Yard, the University Neighborhood Housing Program, and the Herbert H. Lehman Center for Student Leadership Development, will welcome Chris Hayes back to the Bronx to discuss his new book, A Colony in a Nation on Sunday, May 21, at 6:45 p.m. This event, which is free and open to the community, will take place in the Lovinger Theatre. Book sales will benefit one Bronx woman’s goals of opening the borough’s only bookstore.

Born and raised in the Norwood section of the Bronx, Hayes is the best-selling author of Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy, an Emmy Award-winning news anchor, and serves as Editor-at-Large of The Nation. In his new book, A Colony in a Nation, Hayes posits that there are two Americas: a Colony and a Nation. In the Nation, we venerate the law. In the Colony, we obsess over order, fear trumps civil rights, and aggressive policing resembles occupation.

Lehman alumnus Noëlle Santos, who has generated a great deal of attention recently for her Lit Bar bookstore idea, will facilitate book sales at the event. A portion of the sales will go to advance her cause. Santos hopes to open her storefront by the fall.
