Air Date:
Heard On Special Programming

Produced in association with WGBH/Boston, this documentary examines the much-contested right to vote in America — from slaves freed after the Civil War, to women’s suffrage, to the civil rights movement, to today’s debate over whether voters should be required to show ID at the polls. In ‘The Right to Vote,’ we hear diverse voices and views, plus archival audio, on the long battle over who is included in our democracy.
