"Election 2020: Playbook and the Price" Guest: Dr. James Lance Taylor, Ph.D. May 2, 2020 - 10 pm EDT Original Broadcast Date:  May 2, 2020  Chair, Department of Politics, former President of the National Conference of Black Political Scientists (NCOBPS), an important organization of African American, African, and Afro Caribbean political scientists in the United States, 2009-2011.   On March 3, Joe Biden began putting together the coalition of minority and white-suburban supporters that made him the nominee via wins in ten of the 14 states holding contests that day. African-Americans were his base: According to exit polls, he won 58 percent of black voters across this vast landscape. Will it hold. What plays will this base make and for what are Black people holding him accountable in return for our vote? Will the “Black agenda” survive going forward? Under what political infrastructure will “this base” hold the line?  We will talk with Dr. James Taylor, a renowned political scientist, and professor about the urgency of the issues going toward a Joe Biden nomination and the Democrats historical failure to address them.
