Republicans and the Black Vote
"The Republican Party once enjoyed nearly unanimous support among African American voters; today, it can hardly maintain a foothold in the black community. Exploring how and why this shift occurred, as well as recent efforts to reverse it, Michael Fauntroy meticulously navigates the political strategies that have driven a wedge between the GOP and its formerly stalwart constituents."--BOOK JACKET.
