Virtual Seminar: “A Closer Look at the Disenfranchisement of Black Voters”

calendar October 21, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm location Zoom webinar and Facebook live-stream price-tag Free; pre-registration required for Zoom webinar

We are pleased to announce the seventh seminar in this ongoing series. This seminar will take a closer look at the legal, economic and violent methods used to disenfranchise black voters after the adoption of the 15th Amendment. While freed black men were granted the right to vote as part of the Reconstruction Era Amendments to the Constitution, those rights were stripped by states following the end of Reconstruction and were virtually non-existent until the Voting Rights Act was adopted during the Civil Rights movement. It is imperative to understand how out history has laid the groundwork for the continued attack on voting rights today and what we can do so that all people have the opportunity to participate in our democracy.
