BACKGROUND: The failings of capitalism and the rise of wealth inequality in the US has become a more and more common topic of political discussion. Communities of color in the US have long suffered disproportionately in terms of economic, racial, and gender justice. But that is no accident as my next guest describes in his timely history book, Equality: An American Dilemma 1866-1896.
