Seeking Respect in Back Row America
"Dignity" by Chris Arnade sheds light on America's forgotten poor, drug-addicted, and abandoned individuals in both urban and rural areas. Through unforgettable true stories and stark photographs, Arnade exposes the reality of the current class divide and indicts elitists who've overlooked poverty and addiction for decades. By sharing his experiences from his travels across the country, Arnade gives a voice to America's Back Row - those who lack the credentials and advantages of the meritocratic upper class. This book offers a new perspective on the dignity and resilience of people who have been left behind, reminding us to truly see, hear, and respect those who are often unseen.
