On Unheard Voices, Friday, April 2, 2021 Bobby Bishop interviews Douglas H. Palmer, the former Mayor of Trenton, NJ, and the first African-American to serve in that office–first elected in 1990, he went on to serve as mayor for a distinguished 20 years.
Douglas Palmer also served as the President of the US Conference of Mayors from 2006-2008, and from his experienced political vantage point he discusses with Bobby the tremendous efforts of Stacey Abrams to build a healthy system of voter’s rights in Georgia, as well as the powerful corporate pushback to Georgia’s new and repressive voter legislation.
