P&P Live!: Zerlina Maxwell – The End of White Politics: How to Heal Our Liberal Divide - with Alicia Garza

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - 8:00pm

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

After working on two presidential campaigns (for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton), MSNBC political analyst and SiriusXM host Zerlina Maxwell gained first-hand knowledge of everything liberals have been doing right over the past few elections--and everything they are still doing wrong. Ultimately, these errors worked in President Donald Trump's favor in 2016; he effectively ran a campaign on white identity politics, successfully tapping into white male angst and resistance. In 2020, after the Democratic Party's most historically diverse pool of presidential candidates finally dwindled down to Joe Biden, once again an older white man, Maxwell has posed the ultimate question: what now, liberals?

The times--and the demographics-are changing, and in order for progressive politics to prevail, we must acknowledge our shortcomings, take ownership of our flaws, and do everything in our power to level the playing field for all Americans. The End of White Politics shows exactly how and why progressives can lean into identity politics, empowering marginalized groups, and uniting under a common vision that will benefit us all.

Maxwell will be in conversation with Alicia Garza, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement and Special Projects Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance.
