In The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America, historian and award-winning, bestselling author Carol Anderson, Ph.D., the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University, powerfully illuminates the history and impact of the Second Amendment, how it was designed, and how it has consistently been constructed to keep African Americans powerless and vulnerable. The Second is neither a “pro-gun” nor an “anti-gun” book; the lens is the citizenship rights and human rights of African Americans.
Prof. Anderson is the author of One Person, No Vote, long-listed for the National Book Award and a finalist for the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award; White Rage, a New York Times bestseller and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award; Bourgeois Radicals; and Eyes off the Prize. She was named a Guggenheim Fellow for Constitutional Studies.
Prof. Anderson will be in conversation with Heather Cox Richardson, Ph.D., Professor of History at Boston College and an expert on American political and economic history.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
