Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities

Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities launched Who Gets to Vote: Conversations on Voting Rights in America to engage the public in discussions on the history of voting—and efforts to suppress the vote. Two keynote programs and a four-part reading and discussion series were organized. Book discussions examined the expansion of voting rights, the women’s suffrage movement, historic and contemporary voter suppression practices, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (and the 2013 Supreme Court decision that invalidated key portions of it), and the disenfranchisement of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated Americans.
