Dupré Library Special Collections and the Guilbeau Center for Public History are hosting the first of three planned
We’re excited to announce Dupré Library is hosting "Who Gets to Vote? Conversations on Voting Rights in America", a thoughtful reading & discussion series for the Lafayette community that explores how voting rights history intersects with the challenges of today.
“Who Gets to Vote?” is part of the “Why It Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
A Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities grant will enable Edith Garland Dupré Library to host a community book reading and virtual discussion series on voting rights in the United States. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s library is one of 10 across the state to secure an LEH grant for “Who Gets to Vote? Conversations on Voting Rights in America.”
Beginning Wednesday, March 10, and continuing for the next three weeks, participants will discuss one of four books. The discussions will be held on Zoom from 6:30-8 p.m. UL Lafayette faculty members will act as facilitators.
