February is Black History Month. The Epoch Times interviews best-selling author, attorney and talk show host #LarryElder about his unexpected views on #blackhistory, and what he sees as the number one issue affecting black Americans today.
Elder had a difficult relationship with his father, who faced hardship growing up in the American south under unfair laws. Their path to reconciliation, chronicled in Elder’s books “Dear Father Dear Son” and “A Lot Like Me,” was important in shaping his worldview.
We discuss Elder’s views on contemporary America and how he sees it contrasting with the history of the not-so-distant past. He also explains why he believes President Trump’s approval ratings in the polls have been rising among black Americans.
