Sojourner Truth Radio: Election Day Special – Inside the Vote in Key Battleground States by Sojourner Truth with Margaret Prescod published on 2016-11-08T18:17:41Z This is it. After a long, nasty and grueling campaign, one we are told is unprecedented in US history, a divided country goes to the polls to elect the 45th President of the United States. Hillary Clinton brought out a slew of celebrity musicians in her final rallies, including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. Last night in New York City's Washington Square Park, Madonna weighed in by making an impromptu performance. In Philadelphia, First Lady Michele Obama and President Barack Obama joined Clinton for a final rally. Meanwhile, Trump sprinted across the nation minus celeb performers (beyond Ted Nugget in Michigan) and also minus surrogates. Nevertheless, his rallies were attended by thousands and had the atmosphere of a rock concert. Though national polls show Hillary with a four-percent point lead, nothing can be taken for granted. Turnout is key, and we encourage all who can to vote! As in the Sojourner Truth tradition, we speak to people on the ground in several of the key states. Award-winning journalist Linn Washington will speak to us from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; labor union official Frank Meznarich is on the ground in Ohio; law professor Irving Joyner fills us in from North Carolina; and Austen McCoy, a postdoctoral fellow in Ann Arbor shares news from Michigan.
