Britt Harvey is an assistant editor at Hazlitt. She’s previously written for the Winnipeg Free Press, and has spent an inordinate amount of time reading about other people’s problems.

Looking to unseat America’s first black president, the party has played a dangerous game with race and gender politics. Hazlitt speaks with Danielle McGuire, an historian of the civil rights movement, about what’s behind the unprecedented divisiveness of this year’s campaign.
