Unmasked: The Great Suppression
About This Program
The month of April marks a full year of our premiere virtual series, Unmasked. A manifestation of our CEO David Taylor's vision, the series was created to inform and ignite our community around current and pressing issues. We started the series addressing urgent topics surrounding the pandemic's imbalanced effect on the Black community in business, health, and education. However, as 2020 continued to lead us into unparalleled territory, we felt equally responsible and honored to curate pivotal content in what felt like the eye of the storm.
Reminiscent of our original efforts of timely conversations for critical issues affecting our community, we use this anniversary episode to review recent voting policies that continue to escalate across 47 states in 2021, particularly the passing of Georgia’s most recent constricting voting laws. With changes such as ID requirements and limitations to absentee voting, we invite scholars and political leaders to review patterns in policy-based discrimination in order to work out how these changes will affect us locally and beyond.
