Nicholas Dawidoff in Conversation with Kevin Young
- October 22, 2022
The author of The Other Side of Prospect comes to DC on Mon., Oct. 24th, at 7 p.m.!
The Other Side of Prospect: A Story of Violence, Injustice, and the American City is the immersive story of a 2006 murder in New Haven, just blocks away from Yale University, and the innocent 16-year-old boy named Bobby who’s coerced into confession and sentenced to prison for 38 years. A lawyer who discovered his case miraculously helped win his release in 2015, only for Bobby to face heartbreaking challenges on reentry into society. Through Bobby’s experience, Dawidoff, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and New Haven native, tells a wider story of the tangled legacy of the Great Migration, the hardships of severe deindustrialization in American cities, gun violence, incarceration, and inequality in America.
