Anderson Reflects on Jan 6 Anniversary and Democracy in US

Last month Dr. Carol Anderson, Robert W. Woodruff Professor of African American Studies and Associated Faculty in the History Department, was invited to weigh in on the legacy of the Jan 6 insurrection for Minnesota Public Radio’s program “Big Books & Bold Ideas with Kerri Miller.” Anderson was joined by two other prominent historians, Elizabeth Cobb (Texas A&M) and Eric Foner (Columbia University), in a conversation that sheds light on democracy in the US, past and present. Anderson’s numerous books include White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide (Bloomsbury, 2016) and One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying our Democracy (Bloomsbury, 2018). Listen to the full conversation: “Three historians and authors reflect on this American moment.”
