Presentation: Authors@UF: a conversation with Richard Scher
University of Florida Libraries Scher, Richard
October 16, 2012
Drawing from his award-winning new book, The Politics of Disenfranchisement, Scher discusses the tradition of restricting or denying voting rights to large numbers of Americans.
Scher will engage his audience in a conversation on historical voting barriers, like literacy tests and poll taxes, and more current obstacles, like the recent wave of state laws--including here in Florida--that restrict voting without a photo ID. A stimulating and informative hour on a controversial topic at the heart of American democracy and the 2012 elections.
