P&P Live!: Tiffany Cross – Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy - with Dr. Jason Johnson

Upcoming Event
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series.

Black voters were critical to the Democrats' 2018 blue wave. In fact, 90 percent of Black voters supported Democratic House candidates, compared to just 53 percent of all voters. Despite media narratives, this was not a fluke. Throughout U.S. history, Black people have played a crucial role in the shaping of the American experiment. Tiffany Cross argues that still, this powerful voting bloc is often dismissed as some "amorphous" deviation.

Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy is her explosive examination of how America's composition was designed to exclude Black voters, but paradoxically would likely cease to exist without them. With multiple tentacles stretching into the cable news echo chamber, campaign leadership, and Black voter data, Cross creates a wrinkle in time with a reflective look at the timeless efforts endlessly attempting to deny people of color the right to vote--a basic tenet of American democracy.

Cross will be in conversation with Dr. Jason Johnson, author of Political Consultants and Campaigns: One Day to Sell, a tenured professor in the School of Global Journalism & Communication at Morgan State University, and Politics Editor at TheRoot.com.
