If You Arent Scared, You Arent Paying Attention
Vacation does not keep L. Joy from making sure we get our needed #SundayCivics lesson! To discuss voter suppression, she brings film producer Timothy Smith and the incomparable Joy Ann Reid to the front of the class to discuss the perils of voter suppression because in the words of Joy Ann Reid, â€œ..if youâ€™re not scared, youâ€™re not paying attention.â€ Our Guests Timothy (Tim) Smith is an accomplished and award-winning television producer and Executive Producer of the film Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook. Narrated by Jeffrey Wright, Rigged chronicles how our right to vote is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks - including the partisan use of gerrymandering and voter purges, and the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court. The film captures real-time voter purges in North Carolina and voter intimidation in Texas. Tim has worked for The PBS NewsHour, Unapix Entertainment, Newsweek Productions, Docere Digital Studios and MSNBC, where he executive produced their documentaries and series. He has also produced for HBO, NBC, A&E, National Geographic Channel, CNBC, History Channel, AMC as well as NHK, BBC, Channels 4&5, CBC, SABC & TV Global. His work has merited two Emmys and five Emmy nominations, two Gracie Awards, a Grierson, a Cable Ace and Genesis Award nominations. L.

THEÂ NEW YORK TIMESÂ BESTSELLER MSNBC'S Joy-Ann Reid calculates the true price of the Trump presidency "The host ofÂ AM JoyÂ on MSNBC argues that President Trumpâ€™s administration is characterized by grift and venality that demeans the office and diminishes America.â€Â â€”New York Times Book Review, â€œNew & Notableâ€ Is Donald Trump running the â€œlongest conâ€ in U.S. history? How did we get here? What will be left of America when he leaves office? Candidate Trump sold Americans a vision that was seemingly at odds with their countryâ€™s founding principles. Now in office, heâ€™s put up a â€œfor saleâ€ signâ€”on the prestige of the presidency, on Americaâ€™s global stature, and on our national identity. At what cost have these deals come?Â Joy-Ann Reid's essential new book,Â The Man Who Sold America,Â delivers an urgent accounting of our national crisis from one of our foremost political commentators.
