A Free Event for Political Animal Readers This Friday in DC

If any of you are in DC this Friday, you’re welcome to attend a free live event we’re having at the New America Foundation to discuss the cover package in the latest issue of the magazine, “Race, History, and Obama’s Second Term.” The panel will feature two Pulitzer prize-winning authors, M.L. King biographer Taylor Branch and Douglas Blackmon, whose piece in the new issue, on how defacto black slavery continued in the South right up to World War II, will blow your mind. Also on the panel will be the eminent African American scholar Elijah Anderson, whose essay “Emmett and Trayvon,” is also not to be missed.

The event is January 25th, from 10 AM to noon, at the New America Foundation, 1899 L Street NW Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036. For more information and reservations click here.
