The writing of the Second Amendment codified a system where Black people could not own guns while white enslavers could. Carol Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss gun ownership in America and how expanding that right often leaves out Black citizens. Her book is called “The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America.”
