Carol Anderson (One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy), Michael Eric Dyson (What Truth Sounds Like: Robert F. Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America), and Martha S. Jones (Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America) discuss their award-winning works focused on American rights, racism, and resistance. From Dyson's examination of the Civil Rights movement to Anderson's startling and timely look at voter suppression and Jones' deeply-researched study of birthright citizenship, this conversation will explore the opportunities as well as the conflicts between people and policies.
