  13. I was in Detroit touring with a Canadian theatre company, the day MLK was assassinated. I’d just spent my first real year abroad.

    Growing up in London, as a teen I was thoroughly exposed to the CND and anti-apartheid movements, but I had no idea what life was really like in the USA.

    Even now, for me, this is an eye-opening and deeply disturbing conversation. 6 million incarcerated! What a living hell the post-Reagan years have bequeathed to us.

    Is this anywhere near close to what “civilization” ought to deliver?
