African Americans and US Politics: Howard University Professor Exchanges Views with Tokyo Foundation Research Fellows

Michael Frazier, a specialist in US politics and community planning, looked back on the recent US presidential election in a visit to the Tokyo Foundation in late November 2012.

Frazier is an associate professor of international security and development at Howard University in Washington, DC. He visited Japan to speak at the University of Tokyo and Aoyama Gakuin University on the theme of “African-Americans and the American Political System: From Slave Ships to the White House.”

In his visit to the Tokyo Foundation, he met with Policy Research Director Tsuneo Watanabe and Research Fellow Shoichi Katayama to exchange views on US politics and international security, focusing on the results of the US election and the influence of African-Americans and other minorities on US society and politics.
