Durham, NC – Durham County Library presents Frank Hyman: “Let’s Tear Down the Worst Slavery-Era Monument: The Electoral College” on Saturday, January 27 at 2 p.m. at Stanford L. Warren Branch Library, 1201 Fayetteville St., Durham, NC 27707. This event is free and open to the public.

Two out of the last three presidents lost the popular vote, but “won” the presidency because of the Electoral College. We’ll be living with their judges, budgets and executive orders for a long time. Most voters don’t realize that the Electoral College is a fossil from the days of slavery. Not just a fossil, but a slavery-era monument that we can tear down. Come hear how Frank Hyman thinks you can help change the system.
