SCOTUSblog on camera: Edward Blum (Part two)

What a non-lawyer brings to a political advocacy that sees litigation — especially Supreme Court cases — as the linchpin; the importance of race and religion and what growing up in a Jewish household in Texas means to a passion for civil rights; and seeking to change Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

In this five-part interview, Edward Blum – Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Founder and President of the Project on Fair Representation – discusses his background, running for Congress, and moving from public finance to political advocacy to Supreme Court litigation; the meeting of race, ethnicity and religion; the desire to “make big law” and how to read Supreme Court signals; and success building cases from the ground up – from Bush v. VeraNAMUDNO v. Holder, and Shelby County v. Holder to Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin and beyond – with “people of good will.” (Fabrizio di Piazza)
