CNN Article Quotes Anderson on Race and Gun Control

Charles Howard Candler Professor Carol Anderson was recently quoted in a CNN article written by Brandon Tensley and titled “How race permeates the politics of gun control.” The piece discusses how racial violence, anti-Black prejudice, and Black self-defense movements have shaped gun policy in the U.S. from the 1960s through the present. Anderson is the author, most recently, of The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America (Bloomsbury, 2021), which analyzes the Second Amendment in the context of the citizenship and human rights of African Americans. Read the CNN piece here: “How race permeates the politics of gun control.”
