11.05.2017 - Gary Younge
The British America correspondent Gary Younge (1969) is not the one to sit on his hands. He wrote four books, has a monthly column in The Nation and produced radio and television documentaries about different topics; from the Tea Party to hip-hop culture.
In Another Day in the Death of America; A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives Younge tells the confronting stories behind the ten teenagers who were shot dead on one day in the US. On an average day in America, seven children and teens will be shot dead, so it could have been any day. Yet he chose November 23, 2013. Black, white, and Latino, aged nine to nineteen, they fell at sleepovers, on street corners, in stairwells, and on their own doorsteps.
Gary Younge will be interviewed by Peter Wu. Another Day in the Death of America; A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives is translated to Dutch as Een doodgewone dag in Amerika, published by De Geus.
