The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame

Host Gene Bradley interviews Peter Dreier, Distinguished Professor of Politics and chair of the Urban & Environmental Policy Department at Occidental College about his latest book, The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame, published by Nation Books.
