Prof. Angela Lewis Discusses Black Conservatism

In her book, Conservatism in the Black Community, University of Alabama at Birmingham political science professor Angela K. Lewis tries to dispel the myth that all African-Americans vote in one big liberal bloc. She argues there has been a very strong streak of conservatism in the black community over the years, and, while it may be more visible now than it was in the recent past, it never went away. And she expects that conservative bent to become even more pronounced in future elections.
