How have the pandemic and allegations of voter fraud raised barriers to voting that may disenfranchise many Americans?
Watch a special panel discussion about the FRONTLINE PBS film Whose Vote Counts, which explores an issue critical to the 2020 election: access to voting. Dr. Jelani Cobb, staff writer for The New Yorker and Columbia Journalism School Professor, joins June Cross, documentary filmmaker and Columbia Journalism School Professor, and Frontline producer Tom Jennings, for this discussion on one of the most contentious presidential elections in recent memory.
This is the third installment in the year-long Facing History Now: Conversations on Equity and Justice virtual event series.
