Presented by The Atlantic
The Future of the Civil Rights Movement
America is at a crossroads. The escalation of domestic and global political violence poses an existential threat to democracy. The rise of authoritarianism and extremism and the related crises of disinformation and misinformation threaten democratic norms. So where do we go from here?
Join Vann R. Newkirk II, a senior editor at The Atlantic and the host of the forthcoming podcast Holy Week, in conversation with Janai Nelson, the president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and Hasan Jeffries, an associate professor at the Ohio State University, to discuss the long arc of democracy in Black America and sustainable progress toward racial equality.
