About the Book: 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 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.
