Village member and acclaimed scholar/author Tom Diaz will discuss his newly-published book Broken Scales: Race and the Crisis of Justice in a Divided America. Tom sees that humans naturally categorize one another and erect boundaries to create a sense of orderliness, but that the categorization also creates"otherness" that too often result in racial, ethnic, and religious stereotypes. He argues that everyday actions of ordinary people, in the context of extreme political and cultural polarization, distort the criminal justice system and betray the lofty ideals expressed in America's founding documents. December 8, 2-4 pm.

Via Zoom, Wednesday December 8 at 2:00.
