Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America

On today’s show, Christina Aanestad, filing in for Mitch Jeserich, is in conversation with Ari Berman, reporter for The Nation magazine and author of the book Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America. This book focuses on what happened since the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 and how strategies to keep minorities out of the voting booth jeopardize voting rights in today’s America.
