Andra Gillespie and the New Black Politician

A new generation of Black politicians have come of age in the 21st century. With Barack Obama leaving the White House, Senators such as Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Tim Scott (R-SC) are among the most prominent representatives of the New Black Politician.

For episode 21, Professor Andra Gillespie (Emory University) discusses the New Black Politician, race, and the 2016 election. Gillespie’s work focuses on African American politics and leadership in the post-Civil Rights era. She is the author of The New Black Politician: Cory Booker, Newark, and Post-Racial America, and the editor of Whose Black Politics?: Cases in Post-Racial Black Leadership.
