Join the History Center for a panel discussion that will explore the history of voting rights in conjunction with the Civic Season theme of “Rewind, Reflect, and Reimagine.” Dr. Ray Block of Penn State University will discuss voting history in Pennsylvania, from state jurisdictions under the Constitution, to the 15th Amendment, through today. Civil rights activist Annie Pearl Avery will reflect on her time as project director of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee in Hale County, Texas, and Selma, Alabama, while moderator Miracle Jones of 1Hood Media will examine current voting rights issues. The program will be offered both in-person and virtually. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required.
