The Columbia Chapter of the ACLU will be hosting a discussion with Chris Hayes and Professor Kendall Thomas. Chris Hayes is a New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award-winning television host whose recent book A Colony in a Nation advances a theory of two Americas: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, law and justice are valued. In the Colony, order is prioritized and aggressive and oftentimes violent policing resembles a military occupation.
Hayes and Professor Thomas will discuss his book, his motivations for writing it, and what he hopes law students can take away from it. Hayes will also sign copies of the book and Book Culture will be at the events with copies of the book for students to purchase.
