This edition: Why Were Black Voters Disillusioned with Hillary Clinton?

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 29, 2016.

First aired: December 12, 2016.

Black voting declined in the 2016 presidential election by 8%, contributing to Donald Trump’s stunning upset victory. Was this because of voter suppression, or were many sitting it out as a protest against the failure of the Nation’s first black President to deliver on his promise? Princeton’s African American Studies Department Chair, Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., author of the bestseller, Democracy in Black—How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul, tells Jim Zirin why many blacks are beginning to take a pass on voting for the President.
