Gloria Browne-Marshall: The Voting Rights War: The NAACP and the Ongoing Struggle for Justice

Enoch Pratt Free Library, African American Department

In The Voting Rights War, Gloria Browne-Marshall examines voter laws posing challenges to American voters -- especially African Americans -- from slavery through current controversies of voter suppression, including grandfather clauses, literacy tests, felony disenfranchisement and photo identification requirements. She focuses on the NAACP's century-long struggle to achieve voting equality through efforts on the ground and in court, and the organization's often contentious relationship with the Supreme Court. Browne-Marshall tells the story of the civil rights attorneys who fought in court as well as the brave foot soldiers that paid for voting rights with their lives.

Gloria J. Browne-Marshall is an associate professor of constitutional law at John Jay College of the City University of New York and a civil rights attorney. She reports on the U.S. Supreme Court in her award-winning syndicated newspaper column and hosts the weekly radio program "Law of the Land with Gloria J. Browne-Marshall." She is the author of Race, Law, and American Society.
