Your Call: The untold history of class in America
On the August 1st edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with historian professor Nancy Isenberg about her new book White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America.
Isenberg writes the 1% is the most recently adopted shorthand for moneyed monopoly, bringing attention to the ills generated by consolidated power, but this is nothing new. Class has always been at the center of our political debate, despite every attempt to hide social reality with deceptive rhetoric. What is the history of class in the US? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Renee Kemp and you.
Nancy Isenberg, professor of History at Louisiana State University, and author of White Trash. The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America
