Attica Locke, James Naughtie & Sarah Churchwell: God Bless America

Joe Biden has won the 2020 election, but the future of America remains uncertain. With Trump refusing to concede power and making no move to prepare for the transition to a Biden administration, will the Democrats get to The White House? Are we witnessing a contemporary coup?  

Join American novelist Attica Locke, special correspondent for BBC News, James Naughtie, and Professor of American Literature at the University of London, Sarah Churchwell, to reflect on the result and examine what recent developments mean for us all.  

In conversation with the New Statesman’s US Editor Emily Tamkin.
