Black Lives Matter and the 2020 Elections
The support of white Americans for the Black Lives Matter movement may contribute to the Democratic Party winning elections in November. Republicans disagree. They see an opportunity to use the remedies proposed by Black Lives Matter—especially the dismantling of police departments—to rally white voters. University of Minnesota political science professor Michael Minta leads a distinguished panel to sort out the implications of Black Lives Matter on the 2020 elections. Panelists include Ashley Jardina from Duke University, Christopher Parker from the University of Washington, and LaFleur Stephens-Dougan from Princeton University.
