Learning about our identities and the identities of others can be a messy and complicated process. That's why we launched The Table.

Episode 2: Voter Suppression in the U.S.

Could you identify how many bubbles are on a bar of soap? For decades, questions like these were used to deter Black people from voting. While some of the tactics have changed throughout time, the goal to suppress the right to vote from Black people and other historically marginalized communities has not. Listen in as Courtney and Rosemary discuss the history (and current-day issue) of voter suppression in the U.S. In this episode we are joined by Mr. Nicholson, a Black Vietnam veteran who grew up in Alabama during the 1960s. (Transcript: Voter Suppression)
