VH1’s Marc Lamont Hill speaks to Temple students

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill re-visited his hometown and alma mater in November of last year to engage Temple students in a discussion surrounding issues raised in his new book, Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, From Ferguson to Flint and Beyond. Hill, a distinguished professor, journalist, CNN and Fox contributor, and VH1 talk show host, argues that episodes of police violence on people of color are no anomaly and are demonstrative of a cruel norm that renders certain people in American culture as “disposable.” The speaking event was coordinated by visiting Temple professor Todd Brewster. Brewster, Hill and the student audience partake in a lively discussion surrounding these issues and more that are affecting America right now.

If you missed this appearance by Dr. Hill last year, take the opportunity to catch it on TUTV Thursday, February 9 at 1 and 9 p.m.
