Say It Loud

The OG Black Republicans

Episode 5 | 9m 6s

Did Republicans lead the charge in electing Black politicians? We don’t need to know who you’re voting for but we are interested in how the end of the Civil War meant the start of Black people in US Government and the resilience required by these OG Black politicians to occupy space in a government that was very divided on whether owning people was bad.
