There’s been a lot of talk about the upcoming election and efforts to “rig” the outcome, but as the documentary film Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook [2] plainly demonstrates, the political right has been working hard to subvert elections in the U.S. for several years now – particularly in states like North Carolina.

Join us as we watch an excerpt from the film and hear reactions from an expert panel that will include:

Prof. Carol Anderson – Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University [4] and author of White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Nation’s Divide [5], a New York Times Bestseller, Washington Post Notable Book of 2016, and a National Book Critics Circle Award winner.

Timothy E. Smith – Smith is an award-winning television and documentary executive and the producer of Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook [2]. He has worked for MSNBC, Unapix Entertainment, Newsweek Productions and now, the American Issues Initiative [6].

Bob Phillips – Phillips is the executive director of Common Cause North Carolina [7]. He has spent the last several years helping to lead the fight to combat gerrymandering and secure fair elections in North Carolina.
