Ruth P. Morgan, political science professor emerita and former SMU provost, appeared on “Sharing the Power: A Voter’s Voice Special” on KERA public television and public radio on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
See an excerpt of Morgan talking about Dallas, its adoption of single-member districts and how this is now affecting Dallas' suburbs. Also, learn more about KERA's "Sharing the Power" series on single-member districting in North Texas.
The program, hosted by Sam Baker, examined the filing of the lawsuit in Dallas that led to single-member district government and how this concept is becoming increasingly important in the North Texas area.
Morgan is a specialist in the U.S. presidency. She served for 13 years as state elections analyst for ABC News election coverage. Her books include Governance by Decree: The Impact of the Voting Rights Act in Dallas, published in spring 2004, and The President and Civil Rights: Policy-Making by Executive Order.
