Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! For those reflecting on his legacy, we recommend the following essential reading: Gregory T. Moore's "Beyond the Voting Rights Acts," a survey of the voting rights struggle in the US from the 1980s to today.
According to Martin Luther King III, "'Beyond the Voting Rights Act' tells a captivating and long overdue story that bridges the historic battles for voting rights that my father led, to the landmark legislative battles for voter registration and democratic reform from the 1980s to the present. A must-read during this period of ever-increasing threats to the Voting Rights Act and our American democracy."
