Say Their Names. Hear Their Voices

July 02, 2020

As we reflect on racism and anti-racism, the Roper Center has identified and is making available all public opinion surveys of Black Americans in the Roper data archive. We highlight these surveys of Black Americans, which span from 1945 to 2020, in order to remember and amplify the voices of these individuals. We are also making more than eight decades of public opinion data on how the U.S. public views Black America available. Download charts, identify datasets, and learn about the history of U.S. polling on race and Black American public opinion here.
