Erik Love, James Weldon Johnson Institute visiting scholar, gave a presentation on March 20, 2017, titled “The Third Rail: Race and American Public Transportation Advocacy.” In this talk, which was part of the James Weldon Johnson Institute’s Race and Difference Colloquium Series, Love shared the initial findings from his current research project on how American public transit advocacy organizations deal with race and racism in today’s so-called post-Civil Rights era, with a particular focus on the Atlanta metro region and the MARTA system.
