Josh Levin in Conversation with Gene Demby

Part social history, part true-crime investigation, Slate editor Josh Levin's mesmerizing new book, The Queen, the product of six years of reporting and research, is a fascinating account of American racism, and an expose of the "welfare queen" myth, one that fueled political debates that reverberate to this day. The Queen tells, for the first time, the fascinating story of what was done to Linda Taylor, what she did to others, and what was done in her name. The author will be in conversation with Gene Demby, the lead blogger for NPR's Code Switch team.
