The History of Blacks In Politics: A Long Road
The recent election of Kamala Harris as the first African American female vice president points to a new period in the long and rich tradition of African American political history. Today’s panel, The History of Black Politics: A Long Road—The Black Political Tradition, is a moderated discussion hosted by Spencer Overton, lawyer and president of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. Overton will be joined by an impressive panel of legislative leaders including U.S. Representatives James Clyburn and Eleanor Holmes-Norton, former Speaker of the California State Assembly Willie L. Brown and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. We will also hear from Charles Henry and Lorenzo Morris as commentators. The discussion also features a Q&A session with questions from The HistoryMakers PoliticalMakers Advisory Committee. After an unprecedented election cycle and a year like no other, be sure to tune in for this important discussion on the past of black politics, and the future that lies ahead.
