Episode #354: David Dinkins and the Harlem Gang of Four

Donald Trump may have lost, but former Nebraska Congressman Hal Daub argues that the Republican Party did very well in the 2020 elections, winning seats they weren’t supposed to and surprising all the forecasts of a Blue Wave.

The recent death of David Dinkins, New York’s first and only African-American mayor, prompted a look not only at his record but of the past, present, and future of black politics in NYC.  Former New York State Comptroller Carl McCall conducts the tour.
