About this Event
Join distinguished historian and civil rights thought leader Carol Anderson in a discussion on how voter suppression poses a direct threat to our democracy. While the U.S.A. was founded on the ideal that “all men are created equal,” our nation has a long history of disenfranchisement of women, people of color, low-income people, and people with disabilities. Professor Anderson will discuss how historical oppression continues to manifest itself into present-day voter suppression. There will also be opportunities to take action and volunteer to protect our voting rights.
Carol Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University and author of White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Nation's Divide, a New York Times Bestseller, Washington Post Notable Book of 2016, and a National Book Critics Circle Award winner. She is also the author of Eyes Off the Prize: The United Nations and the African American Struggle for Human Rights, 1944-1955; Bourgeois Radicals: The NAACP and the Struggle for Colonial Liberation, 1941-1960, and One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy.
