If you’re a regular listener to AirTalk, you’re probably very familiar with USC Professor Jody Armour, who frequently joins Larry on the air to discuss general legal issues and ones where race, policing and law intersect.

"N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law" by Jody Armour (Los Angeles Review of Books 2020).
Los Angeles Review of Books

Last month, Professor Armour released his latest book “N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law,” and its release could not be more timely as the U.S. finds itself in the middle of a national reckoning on race and equality in society.

Today on AirTalk, Jody joins Larry to talk about some of the major themes he explores in his new book, including critical race theory, criminal justice reform, why he chose the title he did and how his book applies to the ongoing national discussion on race and equality in America.

Guest:

Jody Armour, author of “N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law” (Los Angeles Review of Books, August 2020); professor of law at the University of Southern California; he tweets @NiggaTheory
