Black Republican Larry Elder is leading the race to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom. For decades, the GOP was the default choice of millions of Black voters. But that changed during the civil rights era, as that party emerged as the home of segregationists, white supremacists, and their sympathizers. On today’s episode of A Word, Jason Johnson is joined by Michael Steele, Maryland’s former lieutenant governor and ex-chair of the RNC, to talk about Black Republican leadership and the future of Black conservatives.
Guest: Michael Steele, former chair of the RNC, and a political analyst for MSNBC.
Podcast production by Ahyiana Angel and Jasmine Ellis.
