The 15th Amendment may have granted African Americans the right to vote, but it hardly ushered in a new era of voting equality. Instead, it marked the beginning of a new chapter in the struggle for equality. In “Bending Toward Justice,” historian Gary May shows how the Voting Rights Act of 1965 helped bring down Jim Crow and provide pathways to the ballot box.

Join us in discussing this book and others in "Who Gets to Vote?", an unforgettable book club that includes scholar-led discussions on voter rights.
