Event Details

Before, during, and after the recent elections we saw efforts to suppress the vote of certain demographic groups, especially in southern and swing states. Voter suppression is not new, nor has it been limited to one party. How has the right to vote been historically threatened? How does consent of the governed continue to be violated? The Racial Justice Action Group and Reclaim our Democracy invite you to join Professor Raymond Arsenault, a specialist in the political, social, environmental, and civil rights history of the American South, and fellow historian Professor Stephen Whitfield in a program presented by Kerem Shalom.
