The Struggle for Voting Rights
Voting Matters is an interactive multimedia exhibition that illustrates the work of African Americans from pre-Reconstruction through the present day, in the development of the basic principles and values surrounding our current understanding of what it means to have the “right to vote” in democratic societies around the world.
Sponsored by Bank of America, this modular exhibition consists of five parts: Pre-Reconstruction/Reconstruction (1870-1877), Post-Reconstruction (1888 - Today), The Women’s Suffrage Movement, Electoral College, and Gerrymandering.
Experience firsthand accounts of triumphs and tragedies endured by African Americans on the journey to the right to vote.
This exhibition features paintings, photographs, memorabilia, documents, and more.
