Literary Salon

From the New York Times best-selling author of White Rage, comes a history of voter suppression in America. Anderson discusses the rollbacks to African American participation in the vote, triggered by the 2013 Supreme Court decision that eviscerated the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Known as the Shelby ruling, this decision effectively allowed districts with a demonstrated history of racial discrimination to change voting requirements without approval from the Department of Justice. Carol Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University. White Rage won the National Book Critics Circle Award, Bourgeois Radicals, and Eyes off the Prize.
