Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted

April 1, 2015, 12:00pm ET - 1:00pm ET

Few American institutions have inflicted greater suffering on ordinary people than the Supreme Court of the United States. As Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Ian Millhiser explains in his new book, Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted, Supreme Court justices have shaped a nation where children could toil in coal mines, citizens could be forced into internment camps because of their race, and women could be sterilized against their wills by state law. The Court was the midwife of Jim Crow, the right hand of union busters, and the dead hand of the Confederacy. And the modern Court is not a vast improvement, with its incursions on voting rights and its willingness to place elections for sale.

Please join CAP for a conversation between Millhiser and Supreme Court journalist Jeffrey Toobin, as they discuss Injustices and its implications for how progressives should approach the judiciary.

Copies of Injustices will be available for purchase at the event.
