Voting and what’s at stake, a discussion

Professor Kimmika Williams-Witherspoon, one of the organizers of Chat in the StacksFor ten years running, the Libraries and the Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Faculty of Color have co-hosted this engaging series of panels on timely topics, featuring faculty from across the university. In this edition of Chat in the Stacks, a panel discusses the high stakes associated with voting rights.

While some argue that there should be more legislation aimed toward avoiding voter fraud, there’s a strong argument to be made that the legislation disenfranchises minority voters. The panel discusses the implications of the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision to roll back certain protections of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and its impact on our current political and voting landscape.

Tune in Thursday, September 13 at 1 and 9 p.m. for this library lecture.
