Episode Description:

Guest: Michael David Cohen, PhD

From voter disenfranchisement – poll taxes and literacy tests – to the Voting Rights and Civil Rights Acts of the 1960’s – to the “purpose and meaning” of erecting Confederate statues in the South, and the messages they were meant to send to future generations. A historical account of racial discrimination and family separation policies of a nineteenth century slave-owner president – to family separation policies of today. A survey of the aftermath of Reconstruction and the education system that followed including: the US Supreme Court ruling in “Plessy v. Ferguson” making “Separate but Equal” the law of the land, to “Brown v Board of Education” – striking down ‘Separate but Equal’ as Unconstitutional. Explanation of the benefits and challenges posed by the ratification of the 13th and 15th Amendments to the US Constitution abolishing slavery, and giving black men the right to vote.
