Pop and Politics with Farai Chideya-The New Map: America Redrawn and Reconceived
Pop and Politics with Farai Chideya is a three-part series about the 2010 midterm elections, looking beyond the horserace to get to the real issues, fears, and beliefs that motivate voters. Chideya looks at hot-button issues such as race, immigration and economics. She presses politicians in battleground states for answers and turns to real people, on their turf, to ask if they think America is headed in the right direction. Also examined is the undercurrent of vitriol present in American political discourse, and Chideya will explore how America can move forward, post-election, towards reconciliation. Pop and Politics with Farai Chideya will include a truly diverse spectrum of people in the conversations of our times.
Immediately following the midterm elections, Chideya and guests will analyze the resulting new political map. They'll look for connections and trends, drawing on everything from the 2010 Census to themes in pop culture. Chideya and her team will also discuss what may lie ahead for politicians and private citizens alike.
