Upton Sinclair

hiSTORY | S1:E16

As a devout socialist, author Upton Sinclair intended to vindicate Italian anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti, whose murder conviction was celebrated by American leftists. When Sinclair learned the facts of the case, he decided the cause was more important than telling the truth. Glenn uncovers this part of Sinclair’s story that is seldom included in American history books.
