ONE PERSON, NO VOTE: HOW VOTER SUPPRESSION IS DESTROYING DEMOCRACY
by Carol Anderson (288 pp)

Longlisted for the National Book Award in Nonfiction

From the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of White Rage, the startling--and timely--history of voter suppression in America, with a foreword by Senator Dick Durbin . . . With One Person, No Vote, she chronicles a related history: the rollbacks to African American participation in the vote since the 2013 Supreme Court decision that eviscerated the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Known as the Shelby ruling, this decision effectively allowed districts with a demonstrated history of racial discrimination to change voting requirements without approval from the Department of Justice . . . In gripping, enlightening detail she explains how voter suppression works .
