Remembering Robert Peace

When Robert Peace stepped foot on the Yale campus after a tough upbringing in Newark, it seemed his life was on the right path. This hour, we’ll talk about how the dreams of a brilliant student were ultimately crushed by the life he tried to leave behind with Jeff Hobbs, Peace’s roommate at Yale. Hobbs tells his friend’s story in The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace: A Brilliant Young Man Who Left Newark for the Ivy League (Scribner).
