One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Democracy by Carol Anderson
From the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of White Rage--the startling and timely history of voter suppression in America-- Carol Anderson now brings us One Person, No Vote, with a forward by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, in which she chronicles the history of the rollbacks to African American participation in the vote since Shelby County v. Holder, the 2013 Supreme Court decision that eviscerated the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Join the League for a lively, in-depth discussion of this fascinating book. See old friends and meet new ones in a casual, relaxed setting!
