Glenn Loury (Watson Institute for International and Public AffairsBrown University) and Ryan P. Haygood (NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund)

On The Glenn Show, Glenn talks to Ryan about his work at the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund. Ryan explains why he doesn’t want a post-racial society, but a post-racist one. They debate the recent Supreme Court decision invalidating a key provision of the Voting Rights Act. Ryan argues that the decision failed to take America’s ugly racial history into account. How well did the legal regime established by the VRA serve the political interests of blacks? What should we make of the extreme racial polarization seen in voting in the South? Finally, fifty years after the March on Washington, what would a new civil rights movement look like?
