Award-winning constitutional law historian Lawrence Goldstone will dicuss his book On Account of Race: The Supreme Court, White Supremacy, and the Ravaging of African American Voting Rights with James Duff Lyall Executive Director of  the ACLU of Vermont.

One promise of democracy is the right of every citizen to vote. And yet, from our founding, strong political forces were determined to limit that right. The Supreme Court, Alexander Hamilton wrote, would protect the weak against this very sort of tyranny. Still, as On Account of Race forcefully demonstrates, through the better part of American history the Court has instead been a protector of white rule. And complex threats against the right to vote persist to this day.
