The founders of the United States declared that consent of the governed was a key part of their plan for the new nation. But for many years, only white men who had money were allowed to vote. This unflinching and inspiring history of voting rights looks back at the activists who answered equality’s call, working tirelessly to secure the right for all to vote, and it also looks forward to the future and the work that still needs to be done.
