Civil Rights and Race Relations in America and Their Impact on the Lives of African Americans
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Sherrilyn Ifill, LDF's President and Director-Counsel, appeared on Andrea Mitchell Reports and the PBS Newshour today to discuss the Supreme Court's ruling in Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder, which struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act, leaving voters of color unprotected in places with the worst histories of racial discrimination in voting. Ms. Ifill discussed the significant setback, and Congress's important role going forward.
