Did Bernie do enough to win the Black vote? Is the left doing enough to push back against the narratives spun by Black figureheads and media figures who fatally impacted Bernie's chances in South Carolina? What opportunities does the "Black voter block" present to a left looking for leverage with the Democratic Party? How do we contend with the weaponization of identity? On this last episode of Black History Month, we put those questions to Adolph Reed, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania; Paul Prescod, public school teacher, political liaison with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and contributing editor for Jacobin; and Dean Robinson, Associate Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst.
