On November 2nd, voters will go to the polls to elect our next round of Politicians. Voting was not an automatic right given to African Americans, especially in the South. It was not something automatically given to women either. However, white women were not subject to beatings and death for the right to vote. There is no excuse not to exercise your right to vote, and to know those in your community who represent you. Host Anita Wills takes up this topic, and clears up some misconceptions about the political leanings of African Americans. Tune In and Listen Up!
