Wisconsin Book Festival

Wisconsin Book Festival: One Person No Vote author event

WISCONSIN BOOK FESTIVAL:
VIRTUAL AUTHOR VISIT

One Person, No Vote (YA Edition), by Carol Anderson

MAY 26, 11am

Watch the recording--and request a FREE copy of her book!

From the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of White Rage, a young adult edition of a startling—and timely—history of voter suppression in America. The milestone election of President Barack Obama should have been a signal of racial progress. But in the aftermath of this victory, a movement has emerged that threatens a cornerstone of democracy: the promise that each vote counts. When a 2013 US Supreme Court decision undid the protections offered by the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the floodgates opened to voter suppression on a whole new scale. From photo ID requirements to gerrymandering and poll closures, this book explores the ways that racist political maneuverings work to limit voting rights—and the ways that activists are fighting to restore them. Complete with a discussion guide, photographs, and information about becoming involved during elections as a teen, this is an essential explanation of the history of voting rights—and a call to action for a better future.
