In the young adult adaptation of Carol Anderson’s New York Times best-seller One Person, No Vote, readers encounter the history, the statistics, and the possible solutions for voter suppression in the United States.
As the jacket explains, when a 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision (known as the Shelby ruling) undid the protections offered by the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the floodgates opened to voter suppression on a whole new scale. From photo ID requirements to gerrymandering and poll closures, this book explores the ways that racist political maneuverings work to limit voting rights — and the ways that activists are fighting to restore them
Complete with a discussion guide, photographs, and information about becoming involved as a teen during elections, this is an essential explanation of the history of voting rights — and a call to action for a better future. [Description from the publisher.]
