If you’re at Law and Society in Mexico City, come by and see Luis Fuentes-Rowher, Joshua Sellers, and me talk about how this era of Trump fits in the larger legacy of voting rights in the United States. The room is 453 Danubio.
As I noted last week, I joined NCCU Law Professors Irving Joyner and April Dawson for a discussion of the history and future of voting rights on the Legal Eagle Review radio show on WNCU. The show aired this past Sunday night. In case you missed it because you were perhaps getting ready for the train wreck that was the Oscars, the podcast of the show is now up, and you can download or stream it here: http://www.wncu.org/podcasts/legal-eagle-review-podcast-0226/ .
This Sunday, February 26, at 7 PM ET, I will be the guest on the Legal Eagle Review radio show on WNCU-FM. I will be talking about the history of voting rights with NCCU Law Professors Irving Joyner and April G. Dawson. The discussion will emphasize the parallels between the past of racial voter suppression and the present, the impact of the Shelby County v. Holder decision on the enforcement of voting rights, and the possible futures for voting rights in the Trump era.
Tune in at 90.7 FM in the Durham, NC area or listen to the livestream here.
I will be on WRAL-TV (Raleigh, NC viewing area) tonight at 7:00 PM on their news and discussion show “On The Record” I will be discussing recent controversies and American elections, including the recent comments by the President concerning the existence of illegal votes and other issues related to voter fraud. For those of you not in the area or who can’t watch the show live, the link to the broadcast is here.
As readers of the blog know, a main theme of my election law research considers the ramifications of the narrative of unproven voter fraud. My research on this is here, and my blogpost in the wake of the November election that discusses the ramifications of Trump’s use of the voter fraud meme is here. And expect more research and writing from me on this issue.
