A Limited Edition Series Talk
At a critical time in American history with a tumultuous census, a national election, and an atmosphere of both heightened activism and racist backlash, When They See Us Vote is a limited-series podcast that seeks to engage and educate listeners who are becoming politically conscious and active at this moment with an analysis of how we build resilience and Black political power at the voting booth and beyond. An Advance Carolina project, When They See Us Vote is produced by Natalie Bullock Brown, Bree Newsome Bass and Ajamu Dillahunt co-host the podcast. Listeners can use the accompanying episode toolkit to deepen individual understanding around the issues discussed and serve as a guide for hosting conversations and study groups.
