“The scary thing is that very few people are asking the question about where the black voices are,” said Dr. Ricky Jones, a Pan-African studies professor at the University of Louisville and director of UofL’s Center for Race and Inequality. “It’s a problem that’s getting worse rather than better, because there are many who think if you raise these issues, you’re playing a political race card when you’re really not. And so nobody even asks the question of presence or voice.”
