Carol Anderson - One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy

Upcoming Event
Friday, September 14, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Anderson won the National Book Critics Circle Award for White Rage, her revelatory analysis of the nation’s systematic repression of African-American social and political gains. Her new book is an equally astute history of voter suppression in America. Focusing on the 2013 Shelby ruling that effectively eviscerated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by invalidating two key provisions regarding federal preclearance, Anderson, professor and chair of African American studies at Emory, puts the ruling in the larger context of U.S. racism, traces the ruling’s immediate practical effects on voters, especially black voters in the South, and proposes ways to redress this harmful decision.
