Black Voters’ Long Memory and the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina

"So why don't blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple: Conservatives have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never. Conservatives opposed the Voting Rights Act.

After the event is over, an 'after-action' report will be released but the timing of that is unclear."
