The Day Extremists Stormed The Capitol 18

On Wednesday, pro-Trump extremists overtook the U.S. Capitol grounds, suspending the certification of President-Elect Biden’s win and interrupting the peaceful transition of power. SMU presidential historian Sharron Conrad joins host Krys Boyd to talk about this unprecedented event in American history – and about the role presidents play in American race relations. Her new podcast, co-hosted by Jeffrey Engel and Lindsay Chervinsky, is called “The Past, The Promise, The Presidency, Season One: Race and the American Legacy.”
