Description

The Republican Party once enjoyed nearly unanimous support among African American voters; today, it can hardly maintain a foothold in the black community. Exploring how and why this shift occurred - as well as recent efforts to reverse it - Michael Fauntroy meticulously navigates the policy choices and political strategies that have driven a wedge between the GOP and its formerly stalwart constituents.show more

"Tackling a topic that has not received nearly as much attention as it merits, Fauntroy's timely work provides a comprehensive overview of the GOP in relationship not only to black voters, but to racial politics writ large." - Linda Faye Williams, University of Maryland "A comprehensive and much-needed analysis of party identification among African Americans since passage of the 15 and 19 Amendments.... Fauntroy does a great job th th assessing the obstacles plaguing the Republican Party." - Maruice Mangum, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville"show more
