The Crisis of the White Working Class in Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope
Powerhouse couple, Pulitzer Prize-winning and best-selling writers Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn join Joe Wilkins, 2019 Center for Fiction First Novel Prize finalist for Fall Back Down When I Die, on how the intersections of economic hardship among working-class Americans, the opioid epidemic, and white supremacy play out on the political landscape of the rural West.
This conversation is part of the On America series, which investigates the systems of power that operate within stories we tell, explicitly and covertly affecting the way we perceive ourselves and others. Who are we? Who are we becoming? How do the stories we tell shape who we are as a nation?
