Georgia’s Political Mood | Democracy In Black

Jan 25, 2016

How are voters in Georgia feeling about the upcoming presidential election? Excited? Anxious? Confused? Host Celeste Headlee gets a read on the Peach State electorate with help from Emory University political scientist Andra Gillespie and University of Georgia demographer Trey Hood. Plus, we hear the voices of Georgians around the state expressing their mood about Election 2016. Then, Celeste continues the conversation with representatives from three voter advocacy organizations: Kelli Persons of the League of Women Voters, Stephanie Cho of Asian Americans Advancing Justice and Nse Ufot of the New Georgia Project. Finallly, things have only gotten worse for black Americans during the eight years of President Obama’s tenure. That’s an argument put forth by Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude in his new book, “Democracy in Black.” Host Celeste Headlee speaks with Glaude about his book and why he thinks the country is in the middle of a “Great Black Depression.”
