“Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America,” Ari Berman

Ari Berman is a political correspondent for The Nation and an investigative journalism fellow at the Nation Institute, a nonprofit media center dedicated to strengthening the independent press and advancing social justice and civil rights. In this narrative history, Berman charts both the transformation of American democracy under the Voting Rights Act and the counterrevolution that has sought to limit voting rights from 1965 to the present day. In “Give Us the Ballot,” Berman provides new insight into one of the most vital political and civil rights issues of our time through meticulous archival research, in-depth interviews with major figures in the debate, and incisive on-the-ground reporting.
