People of Color and the 2008 Election: An Interview with Rudy Lopez, Center for Community Change
There's no doubt of the importance of the election of Barack Obama as America's first black president. But what role did people of color play in making this happen and where do they stand in the wake of the election? Jo Ann and Dave talk with Rudy Lopez, Directory of the Center for Community Change about his organization's work in turning out people of color and other disempowered voters for Obama. He'll also talk about how this new bloc of mobilized citizens can ensure that the new president and the Congress remain true to the promises made before election day.
