"The Voting Rights War" tells the story of the courageous and bloody battle for voting rights fought by civil rights lawyers in the Supreme Court and by those foot soldiers who paid the ultimate price for our right to vote. "The Voting Rights War" is a journey from the grandfather clause to literacy tests and all-White primaries to felony disenfranchisement and photo identification laws. Writer Gloria J.
