Lynching and Lunacy: Mab Segrest on the Racist Roots of American Psychiatry




Acclaimed “Race Traitor” author, Mab Segrest, takes Laura through the deep south to trace the racist roots of American psychiatry. They explore the infamous state mental hospital in Milledgeville, Georgia and visit with Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama to consider how our society’s mental and political health relate to history. Segrest’s newest book is “Administrations of Lunacy: Racism and the Haunting of American Psychiatry at the Milledgeville Asylum” due out April 2020.



The Laura Flanders Show leads the field in new economy media, reporting on the social critics, artists, activists, and entrepreneurs who are building tomorrow’s world today. While mainstream media looks for ways the world is falling apart, The LF Show brings us stories that will piece it back together — better.
