269 | Season Finale: Eve Fairbanks on What South Africa's Reckoning Means for the U.S.

For the show's season finale (we're back in August) Eve Fairbanks, author of The Inheritors: An Intimate Portrait of South Africa's Racial Reckoning, joins The Realignment to discuss parallels between 21st century South Africa and the United States when it comes to issues of race, class, economics, and optimism vs. pessimism. Eve and Marshall also discuss post-Apartheid South Africa in the context of our reevaluation of early 1990s triumphs such as the Cold War.
