House Writes Die Has Been Cast for New Direction in Black Politics: The Hill

Roger House, associate professor in American Studies, writes for The Hill that the Black political leaders of Washington D.C. should learn from “the Georgia experiment.” House says that Blacks in Georgia brought attention to an alternative vision of political progress that ignited a grassroots movement for statewide governance.

“…might the [Congressional Black Caucus] gain insights from Black politics in Georgia that could be applied in other states? Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana and Maryland all have about the same proportion of Black demographics — and little Black participation in their state affairs. Georgia’s example may provide answers for unlocking the talent and organization in those states.”
