ABC News. 9 minutes, published in 2020. Does begin with a quick peek of current day voter suppression. Stacey Abrams is featured near the beginning. A historical look at voter suppression begins around 2:30. Covers voting rights history from 1865 – 2019. If we’re concerned that the beginning of the video is going to negatively impact viewers who are not as educated on voter suppression yet, and if our goal is to ease them into it, then we could set up the YouTube video to begin around 2:30.
“Historian Carol Anderson traces the evolution of voter suppression tactics, from poll taxes and literacy tests instituted after the passage of the 15th Amendment to the rise of strict voter ID laws and poll closures after the election of America’s first Black president. Anderson argues voter suppression is rooted in white supremacy and White rage. Anderson is a professor of African American Studies at Emory University and author of ‘White Rage’ and ‘One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying Our Democracy.’”
