The Divided States of Pennsylvania: How one state embodies America's political discord

The Divided States of Pennsylvania: How one state embodies America's political discord

On a sunny day in Philadelphia this fall, James McFadden worried about the future of America as he loaded groceries into his Toyota Prius. “It’s been the worst time that I have ever seen,” said McFadden, 81. That was saying something: He grew up as a Black man in segregation-era Alabama and led sit-ins to protest discrimination during the 1950s and ’60s.
