The Wrong Complexion to Get the Protection

Program #DANR004. Recorded in Woods Hole, MA on June 09, 2001.

Stolen. That's how the year 2000 U.S. presidential election will go down in history to the minds of many Americans. Numerous problems with voting procedures became apparent in the days following the election. But what may be most disturbing is how people of color were literally stopped from reaching the polls. The events that occured in Florida and in other states in many ways showed the true colors of the United States. This is a country still filled with racism despite the powerful civil rights movement. Are we returning to the dark days of black disenfranchisement?
