FREE VIRTUAL EVENT
In 1957, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave one of his most remarkable speeches, "Give Us the Ballot." 65 years later, Washington D.C. continues to be the backdrop for the fight for voting rights. But many think it will take more than elected officials and lobbyists to settle the issues, calling for individuals in communities across the country to let their voices be heard.
Join WHYY and NewCORE on MLK Day 2022 as we reflect on Dr. King’s 1957 speech and explore how it connects to today’s fight for ballot access for all.
