Freedom Now editors interviewed on “Against the Grain”!

Listen Here

“Homelessness may seem a fact of life in a highly unequal society. But there’s much more to it than that. Radical scholars Christina Heatherton and Jordan T. Camp argue that homelessness is fundamentally tied to an intensely racialized form of political control and economic restructuring of our society over the past 40 years, unleashed partially in response to the black freedom struggle and urban rebellions of the 1960s. They discuss why places like Los Angeles’ Skid Row have become a laboratory for policies that ultimately will be applied to our society at large.”
