    In 2012, Chris Hayes published "Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy," a prescient analysis of how Americans' loss of trust in public institutions might lead to a political crisis. That same political and historical acumen informs Hayes's latest book, "A Colony in a Nation," which reveals that by every empirical measure -- wealth, unemployment, incarceration, and school segregation -- racial inequality hasn't improved since 1968. Bringing his signature analysis to this essential issue, Hayes will be joined in conversation by Scripps politics faculty Vanessa Tyson. Hayes is the host of "All In with Chris Hayes" on MSNBC and an editor-at-large at The Nation. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and son. Tyson is an assistant professor of politics at Scripps College. Her latest book, "Twists of Fate: Multiracial Coalitions and Minority Representation in the U.S. House of Representatives", was released in September 2016 by Oxford University Press.
