The latest broadcast of Race & Class radio is now available to download.

On 28 November 2013, Avery Gordon interviewed Professor Phil Scraton for the latest broadcast of Race & Class radio.

Phil Scraton, author of Hillsborough: The Truth, was a member of the Hillsborough Independent Panel and the primary author of its ground-breaking report published last year. In this 35-minute interview he reflects on the struggle, lasting more than two decades, to expose the truth about what happened at the Hillsborough disaster, how the families were eventually exonerated and the way in which the current unprecedented investigations were initiated.
