    Voting Rights History and Legacy Today
    On January 2, 1965, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., came to Selma, Alabama, to recruit an army of nonviolent soldiers to wage a war against laws and customs that prevented blacks from voting. Being a black American living in Selma didn't mean you automatically became a part of this army. The decision to join up was a matter of individual conscience for each man, woman, and child. Many did not volunteer, but many did. You are going to help tell their stories. Our focus is on the “people’s history” of Selma that we all can learn from during this 51st anniversary year of the Selma to Montgomery March and the Voting Rights Act. It is needed, especially now, because excluding citizens from voting is still a live issue. Sheriff’s deputies may no longer be beating people to keep them from registering to vote, but institutionalized racism continues.For example, in 2013 the Supreme Court ruled in Shelby v. Holder that the Justice Department may no longer evaluate laws passed in the former Confederacy for racial bias. Many states like Texas and Pennsylvania tried to pass laws that made voting more difficult by requiring all voters to have a picture ID.
