Episode Details

Original tape date: August 3, 2016.

First aired: August 24, 2016.

Carol Jenkins is joined by Marc Lamont Hill, distinguished Morehouse professor, CNN & BET contributor and Author of "Nobody: Casualties of America's War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond".

The title "Nobody" came from a reference to Michael Brown, a teenager killed in Ferguson on August 9, 2014.

In this interview, Marc Lamont Hill refers to the "nobody" that is truly "somebody" who can change the world.

The "system" is often referred to as being broken when mentioning the treatment of black people, but Hill states that in fact, " the system is working and we should break it".
