CHRYL LAIRD Chyrl Laird, is a political analyst, author and professor, who specializes in Race and Ethnic Politics and Political Psychology. In her new book titled, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior," which Laird coauthored along with Ismail White, they analyze the historical political patterns of Black voters, and explore the question of why Black Americans are by far the most unified racial group in American electoral politics. They argue that the roots of black political unity were originally established through the adversities of slavery and segregation, when black Americans forged uniquely strong social bonds for survival and resistance.  In this conversation, Chryl Laird draws parallels to the historical examples from the book and correlate them to more recent political events, like Democratic primary for instance.

Rita Bosworth was driven to start The Sister District Project, an organization dedicated turning states blue by winning state legislative elections, shortly following the 2016 election. By controlling the balance in state legislative seats, Democrats will have more power to create fairer redistrciting maps, stop extreme partisan gerrymandering, create a more balanced Congress, and even stop and reverse Draconian anti-abortion laws. Winning state legislative races is where the real power lies.

Marianne Williamson is best known as an acclaimed lecturer, activist and author; and seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times bestsellers. Williamson has been one of America’s most well-known public voices for more than three decades and now she's a Presidential Candidate in the 2020 Democratic Primary race. Outside of politics, Marianne Williamson has amassed the largest social media following out of all the 2020 Democratic primary candidates and has been a popular guest on Oprah and Bill Maher. Within politics, however, Williamson is less well-known; except for her Congressional bid in 2014 for California's 33rd District, Williamson is a relative newcomer to formal politics. Williamson has a progressive platform and aligns closely with the political ideology of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who she supported in 2016. But Williamson thinks we need a new approach to healing the country, including establishing a cabinet level Department of Childhood and Youth; additionally her platform includes a proposal to grant a $200 billion - $500 billion in reparations for slavery, a position she's advocated for, for over 20 years, when she wrote about reparations in her book "Healing the Soul of America," in 1999.We discuss the reasons behind her decision to run for President, her platform, what motivates Trump voters and what it will take to win in 2020.

Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers discusses her new book "They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South," a book that dispels a common myth about the role of white women within the institution of slavery, as being one of reluctance and passivity.
