Mother Jones senior reporter Ari Berman joins us to discuss redistricting, race, and voting rights ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Regarded as one of the country’s foremost authorities on the topic of voting rights, the author of Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America looks at current efforts to suppress voter turnout and manipulate district lines in the larger context of post-civil rights era efforts to roll back the Voting Rights Act.
