During “A Conversation with Stacey Abrams,” the Georgia politician sat down with Ben Jealous, University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School Distinguished Visiting Fellow and former NAACP leader, to discuss topics from gerrymandering to romance novels in a lively virtual discussion.
Dean Ted Ruger introduced Abrams and Jealous at the event.
From Penn Today:
In introducing Abrams and Jealous, Ruger noted a tweet Jealous sent the night before the event. In it, Jealous pointed out that he and Abrams organized together in 1994, both ran for governor in 2018 (Jealous ran in Maryland), and both worked together for almost three decades, but the Penn event would be the first time Jealous had ever interviewed Abrams.
“We’re lucky to be part of this first,” Ruger said.
Their conversation covered such a range of topics Abrams joked at one point that it was “like the strangest game of ‘Jeopardy’ ever.”
