Bill Moyers on Dark Money, the Attack on Voting Rights & How Racism Stills Drives Our Politics

In 2013, more than 1,000 people were arrested in North Carolina taking part in a series of protests called “Moral Mondays.” For 13 weeks, demonstrators rallied in the state capital of Raleigh to fight moves by Republican lawmakers to attack voting rights, education, the environment, healthcare and women’s rights. Now organizers are planning their largest protest yet — the Moral March on Raleigh, scheduled for February 8. The protests in North Carolina are the focus of a recent special on Bill Moyers’ show “Moyers & Company.” The documentary, “State of Conflict: North Carolina,” reveals how untraceable political donations called “dark money” have pushed North Carolina far to the right politically and how citizen protesters are fighting back.
