Description

The two-day series looked at black participation at the polls 40 years after the Voting Rights Act safeguarded their right to vote. In a county-by-county analysis of black voter turnout in the 2004 election, it found that blacks still participate at a much lower level than the voting population in general. Officials and advocates were divided on whether this difference in black participation reflects a squandering of the legacy their parents and grandparents died to create, or whether obstacles to voting remain for black voters.
