The Right to Vote[Program 208, 209]
The Right to Vote
Check out more information at humanmedia.org/rtv/



For more information about this special, please check out our Right to Vote page Right to Vote page. This broadcast explores one of the most basic questions facing our democracy: who may participate? In Segment 1, you'll hear a fascinating history of the much-contested right to vote in America: from slaves freed after the Civil War, to women's suffrage, to the civil rights movement. Included is the moving first-person story of a young woman who participated in the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer project for voter registration of African Americans.

Segment 2 presents a diversity of voices and views on today's debates over whether voters should be required to show ID at the polls. Some Americans believe that ensures honest elections; while others see it as an unnecessary obstacle to minority voters. And we consider whether people who've committed felonies should be allowed to vote, after serving their time. Total time: 1 Hour
