      The United States of Anxiety: Building a Multiracial Democracy in 2020

      From WNYC Studios in New York City, The United States of Anxiety is a show about the unfinished business of our history and its grip on our future. Underlying almost every disagreement, every fervent debate as we approach the 2020 election is one basic question: Who is America for? This is an old question. Many of the political and social arguments we’re having now started in the aftermath of the Civil War, when Americans set out to do something no other country had tried before -- to build the world’s first interracial democracy. Host Kai Wright and team will connect the dots between the explosive debates of the late 19th century and the frustrations of a 21st century presidential election. They’ll tell stories about people who are trying to make the radical ideas behind America real in their lives now. And they’ll help voters understand what’s actually at stake in 2020.
