Joshua SellersWe are blessed in this country to have the right to vote…do we exercise it?  Do we realize how precious that right is?

Join us Monday, March 20, 10 a.m., to hear Joshua Sellers, Ph.D., J.D., give an historical perspective on voting, examining the Founding Era, the Civil War and the addition of the Reconstruction Amendments to the Constitution, the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, and the significance of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

In an article written for Oklahoma Humanities, Sellers examines “The State of the Vote – Your “Rights" Revealed.”  He asks the question:

“Voting is a vital sign of a healthy democracy – but is it a constitutional inheritance?

What do you think?  After hearing the voting history of this nation, you may have the answer.
