This month the Racial Justice Project Study Group will be examining the continuing disenfranchisement of the Black Voter in America. Our voting history in the US is rife with suppression and unfairness to persons of color and persons of lower socioeconomic status. The articles selected present a timeline of suppression beginning with the Civil War to 2020. An explanation of the electoral college is included and why the founders believed it necessary to elect a president. The Voting Rights Act passed in 1965 promoting changes in the government to get more persons registered to vote. In 2013 the US Supreme Court changed the way the Voting Rights Act was implemented nationwide at the expense of many US citizens. Understanding the many ways voters are disenfranchised and the impact this has on our federal and state elections is critical. All eligible voters need to participate and have their voices heard!
