Join us for a deep dive into the long struggle for voting rights for women of color. Nationally recognized voting right and election law expert Gilda Daniels will join us to discuss past and current struggles for the vote. Black women have long been at the forefront of the right to vote. Today, 100 years after the passage for the 19th Amendment and 55 years after the Voting Rights Act, their fight continues.

Watch this short PBS video The Ongoing Fight, which we will discuss during this event with our panel of experts.

Professor Gilda Daniels is a voting rights expert and former Deputy Chief in the U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division, Voting Section, where she served in both the Clinton and Bush administrations. She is currently a professor of law at the University of Baltimore Law School and the Director of Litigation for Advancement Project’s National Office, a multi-racial civil rights organization.

UNCOUNTED: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America is her first book. Published in January by New York University Press, it has already been called “required reading” by Ms. Magazine. It “provides a road map and a call to arms for participants in what [Daniels] calls the fight to vote…This book is a valuable resource for all participants in civic life.”—STARRED Booklist
