Publisher's Summary

A timely and essential history of Black voter suppression, adapted from the National Book Award longlisted adult book.

This young adult adaptation brings to light the shocking truth about how not every voter is treated equally. After the election of Barack Obama, a rollback of voting rights occurred, punctuated by a 2013 Supreme Court decision that undid the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Known as the Shelby ruling, this decision allowed districts with a history of racial discrimination to change voting requirements without approval from the Department of Justice. This book follows the stunning aftermath of that ruling and explains how voter suppression works, from photo ID requirements to gerrymandering to poll closures. It also explores the resistance: the organising, activism and court battles to restore the basic right to vote to all Americans. 

This is an essential explanation of the history of voting rights-and a call to action for a better future.
