Program Summary:
 
Author Chris Hedges also teaches college-level courses for New Jersey state prison inmates. His new book, “Our Class,” explains what happened
when Hedges taught a dramatic-literature course to inmates, then helped them write a play of their own – “Caged” – based on their personal life events.
As well, the inmates' stories illustrate the many cruelties of life in an American prison.  Chris Hedges spoke at a KPFA / Project Censored Zoom event
on November 18; this week's program presents excerpts from that talk.
