Blake Strode Looks at Increased Black Political Representation

Former Fellow Blake Strode (‘15) published a letter in The St. Louis American analyzing the recent increase in black political representation (“What Can We Expect From All of This Black Representation?” May 3). “If the critical mass of black public officials elevated during this period is willing to be the catalyst for [trailblazing] action, they will find [a] groundswell of enthusiasm and support waiting to buoy their efforts,” Blake wrote. Blake served as a Skadden Fellow selection trustee in 2016.
