Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorBob Baldock
Hedges speaks clearly with author David Talbot (The Devil's Chessboard) about the most pressing issues facing us. He tackles the rise of a fascist right in support of Donald Trump, which advocates xenophobia and violence in a push for American totalitarianism. He rails against …establishment elites on both sides of the aisle. He tears into the contemporary glamorization of the military and the unchecked, unchallenged hawkishness that defines contemporary American foreign policy. Moreover, he shows his support for contemporary revolts against this twisted order—such as Black Lives Matter—that represent Americans refusing to take the destruction of their country lying down.

Chris Hedges on the most taboo topics in America, by author & publisher David Talbot:

"Chris Hedges has been telling truth to (and against) power since his earliest days as a radical journalist. The kinds of insights he provides into the deeply troubled state of our democracy cannot be found anywhere else. He is an intellectual heir to American radical heroes such as Thomas Paine and Noam Chomsky, and is dedicated to reigniting a shared commitment to radical equality and honesty."

Hedges speaks clearly about the most pressing issues that face our nation. He tackles the rise of a fascist right in support of Donald Trump, which advocates xenophobia and violence in a push for American totalitarianism. He rails against ...establishment elites on both sides of the aisle. He tears into the contemporary glamorization of the military and the unchecked, unchallenged hawkishness that defines contemporary American foreign policy. Moreover, he shows his support for contemporary revolts against this twisted order-such as Black Lives Matter-that represent Americans refusing to take the destruction of their country lying down.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Chris Hedges spent nearly two decades as a correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa, and the Balkans, with 15 years at the New York Times. His books include Empire of Illusion; Death of the Liberal Class; War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning; Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt; and Wages of Rebellion.
He currently writes for Truthdig.

Sabrina Jacobs is the host and producer of A Rude Awakening, a cultural and political affairs show aired weekly on KPFA.

Chris Hedges will speak. His new book is "Unspeakable: On the Most Forbidden Topics in America" Hedges has been telling truth to (and against) power since his earliest days as a radical journalist. He is an intellectual bomb thrower, who continues to confront American empire in the most incisive, challenging ways. The kinds of insights he provides into the deeply troubled state of our democracy cannot be found anywhere else. Like many of our most important thinkers, he has been relegated to the margins because of ideas deemed too radical—or true—for public consumption. Whether it is covering the dissolution of former Soviet states or embedding in the Middle East to understand the post-9/11 world, he has been a singular voice pushing against mainstream media disinformation and the amnesia of establishment received wisdom. He is an intellectual heir to American radical heroes such as Thomas Paine and Noam Chomsky, and is dedicated to reigniting a shared commitment to radical equality and honesty.
