Harris Featured in Article for Time Magazine About the Georgia Runoff

"Duchess Harris, a professor of American Studies at Macalester College and the author of Black Feminist Politics From Kennedy to Trump, says that one reason for this shift is that, while women appear to be committed to something political scientists refer to as “linked fate,” men’s political activity tends, on average, to be driven by what’s good for themselves rather than what’s good for the group. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that zero-sum political messaging—the idea that when one person gains, someone else automatically loses, the exact logic in play with the questions HIT Strategies observed in conversations about the anti-lynching bill—would help draw men away from Black America’s traditional voting patterns."
