Brooklyn Book Festival: The Whole World is Watching presented by The Nation

We are witnessing a moment of unprecedented political engagement and social activism. Pundits once fretted about Americans’ apathy, but in the last few years we’ve seen uprisings and protests coast to coast asserting the importance of Black Lives, economic equality, worker rights and alternative political candidates. Join three young writers who have thought deeply about these movements and the personal impact borne by young people struggling to find their way in an increasingly stratified society. Featuring Mychal Denzel Smith (Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching), Sarah Jaffe (Necessary Trouble) and Sarah Leonard (The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for the New Century). Moderated by Kai Wright (host, WNYC’s “There Goes the Neighborhood”).
