Free Library sponsors talk on voter suppression book

The Free Library of Philadelphia will host a virtual presentation by Carol Anderson, who won the National Book Critics Circle Aware for White Rage and One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy.

The book has been called an "extraordinarily timely and urgent" (New York Times Book Review) primer on the ongoing opposition to Black progress in America since 1865.

Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University and a Guggenheim Fellow for Constitutional Studies. Her previous books include Bourgeois Radicals and Eyes Off the Prize. In One Person, No Vote, Anderson exposes the racial effects of the 2013 Supreme Court decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and follows those who are fighting to restore the right of enfranchisement to all Americans.
