Is voting enough?

In response to the Black Lives Matter protests, some are calling for people of color to “just vote.” But in a country with a history of voter suppression and disenfranchisement, is voting enough? Franita Tolson (USC Gould School of Law) responds to the hypocrisy of this suggestion in her American Constitution Society blog post, “Democracy as a Slogan.” In this episode, she and Ned Foley (OSU Moritz College of Law) discuss racial equality as an ongoing commitment, using the lessons from history that Tolson touches on in her essay, which can be read at https://bit.ly/DemSlogan.
