Sonic Activism & Voter Suppression, an Interview with Gil Talmi on “ALL IN: The Fight for Democracy”

“I see activism as a way of life, not a one-time event that allows us to feel good about ourselves for a day or two. It is the daily commitment to stay active and take continuous action wherever and whenever we can.” — Gil Talmi

Over the past year, American social consciousness has become increasingly attuned to systemic racism and human rights inequalities. In June, 2020, people gathered across the country in organized marches and protests of outcry over the murder of George Floyd. As Ibram X. Kendi notes in his 2016 book Stamped from the Beginning, inequality and suppression of non-white voices goes back to America’s inception.
