Racial Polarization and "Tribal America"

Fall 2015, Cornell Belcher was a visiting Fellow at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics where he presented a series of lectures exploring the impacts of race on the evolution of the American electorate and the future of politics. The thematic topics of the lecture explored how our current “political polarization” is simply a byproduct of “racial polarization” and the implications for the United States if we cannot come together in order to win the future. The following Harvard interview describes some of those themes.
