There were two more highly visible incidents of police killings of citizens this week, one in Baton Rouge and another in a town near St. Paul, Minn.

We haven't heard a lot about the Black Lives Matter movement in the presidential campaign recently. Will that that change? Morning Edition's Jay Pearce talks to political analyst Dr. Christopher Whitt. 

Every other Friday or so from now until the November election, we'll talk with Dr. Whitt about the national and local races from a Quad Cities perspective. You can hear all our conversations here.

Dr. Christopher Whitt is an Associate Professor and the Chair in the Political Science department at Augustana College. He also is the Director of Augustana College’s Center for Inclusive Leadership and Equity. His Ph.D in Government & Politics (Political Science) was earned at the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Whitt is Augustana’s expert on American government and politics, the Presidency, political behavior, minority politics, and gender politics. He is also a leader at the college in community, faculty, and overall workforce diversity efforts. In addition to his roles at the college he is also the Political Analyst for KWQC, the Quad Cities’ NBC television affiliate. He also provides political analysis and commentary on the Quad Cities’ NPR affiliate, WVIK. Over the years, Dr. Whitt has taken on the role of one of the most prominent voices of political analysis in the Quad Cities region and even provides analysis internationally for France24’s English broadcast.
