Voter Suppression in North Carolina and Following Reconstruction: Forward Together, Not One Step Back

Presented by Democracy North Carolina in partnership with the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University

Conservative lawmakers across the U.S. are changing voting laws to make it harder for many groups to vote. It's happening in North Carolina, too. Attempts to limit voter participation are nothing new; North Carolina's history around the struggle for the right to vote - and the backlash against it - offers rich insights and some that may surprise you. This short film is instructive and inspiring - reminding us to speak out and remain vigilant to stop legislation that threatens our democracy.
