. September 1, 2016.

Very few Americans were born into the privilege Chuck Collins enjoyed. Fewer still can imagine giving their wealth away and embarking on a mission to combat inequality at the young age of 26. But that’s exactly what Collins did. As the great grandson of Oscar Mayer, Collins grew up in Detroit among the one-percent before giving away his inheritance and embarking on a life as an author and activist. Collins’ latest work, Born on Third Base, chronicles how taxpayers subsidize the rich, how charity can really enforce inequality, and how Americans can put aside their obsession with class to work together. Copies will be available for purchase following the reading.
