Please join Professor Kareem Crayton and the American Constitution Society for a discussion of the Supreme Court's upcoming decision in Shelby County v. Holder. The question before the Court is whether Congress exceeded its authority under the Fifteenth Amendment by reauthorizing Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires certain states with a history of voter discrimination to obtain federal "pre-clearance" for changes to voting procedures. Professor Crayton will draw on his extensive research on voter discrimination to discuss whether federal oversight is still justified. Lunch will be provided. For more information, please contact David Maxwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
