A Flint water protest

Marc Lamont Hill says we're in the midst of a war in America -- a war being waged on the vulnerable, the destitute, the struggling. Hill is a journalist and a political contributor to CNN.

Most often, he says, those vulnerable people are black, immigrant, LGBT and poor. Easily overlooked. Nobody. 

Marc Lamont Hill explores what life is like in 21st century America if you're nobody. 

Hill's new book is Nobody: Casualties of America's War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond.

GUEST Marc Lamont Hill is a journalist and a political contributor to CNN. He's also a distinguished professor of African-American studies at Morehouse College.
