This edition: Christina Greer on Civic Engagement and the Presidency

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 11, 2017.

First aired: April 17, 2017.

What lessons have we learned from these early months of Donald Trump’s presidency? Will we continue to view presidential elections primarily as entertainment, an around-the-clock reality show? Or, are the protests and organizing efforts signs that we are taking politics more seriously, that we’re more willing to become civically engaged? Is there a danger that younger people might think this kind of haphazard, chaotic and often ill-informed presidency is normal? Bob talks about all of this with guest Christina Greer, an Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, and author of the book, “Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration and the Pursuit of the American Dream.”
