The Ellison Report is a weekly journal of politics, policy, and the people.


PART I: Dayna Matthew Bowen at Brookings shows us how Black inequality didn’t go anywhere – even during the Obama presidency. What that means in the next administration.

PART II: WEAA’s Peter Groff and American University’s David Lublin examine the confirmation hearings, signals of what’s to come.

PART III: Mercatus Center’s Veronique de Guy argues why Congress shouldn’t pass the much-hyped $1 trillion Trump infrastructure package.

PART IV: Elizabeth Minnich, Queen University, on her new book The Evil of Banality and what the concept of “evil” means in the Age of Trump.
