George J. Sánchez in Conversation with David Kipen

Dive into the radical history of a dynamic, multiracial American neighborhood—Boyle Heights! In this illuminating conversation and Q&A, hear from USC professor George J. Sánchez and Libros Schmibros founder David Kipen about Sánchez’s new book, Boyle Heights: How a Los Angeles Neighborhood Became the Future of American Democracy.

In a time when coalition building and civic resistance are in great need, Sánchez shares how Boyle Heights’ rich history of solidarity across racial and ethnic lines—including among Native, Latino, Jewish, and Japanese Americans—makes the neighborhood a beacon on a hill toward which the country can strive.
