Dr. Carol Anderson will trace the evolution of voter suppression tactics used to disenfranchise generations of Black Americans and disable true democracy during the course of a moderated conversation. In Dr. Anderson’s books One Person: No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy and White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide, she delivers a persuasive and well researched argument that White rage and White supremacy have consistently fueled anti-democratic tactics in the past and propel strategies like present-day gerrymandering. Events of the 2020 Presidential election have brought to the forefront this stark truth: the Unites States democracy is fractured. Join this vital conversation with Dr. Anderson on voter suppression, one of the most serious issues in American politics today. Dr. Carol Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University and recipient of multiple awards for her teaching and research. As an author, she has been on the New York Times Bestseller list and awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award, among other accolades.
