Six@Six Lecture Series
Check out a Virtual Season of Six@Six
Six@Six is an annual series of community lectures by NKU’s faculty and students. The series showcases the scholarship and creative work on campus by discussing that work in the community. Normally hosted at venues around the region, including Behringer-Crawford Museum, the series has moved to a special “mini-series” of Six@Six talks using the magic of Zoom and Facebook.
Six@Six - United States Voter Suppression in Context: Past and Current Efforts to Reduce Voting Strength
Tuesday, October 20, 6 p.m.
Join us for the virtual season of Six@Six via Zoom. The United States has a long history of policies designed to impact its citizens’ voting strength adversely. Initially, these policies limited the persons who could cast votes. Even after the federal government expanded the franchise, states adopted new means to prevent voting by certain segments of society. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 addressed many of these devices, but new means have arisen. Furthermore, policies that determine voter registration and the times and methods of voting unnecessarily limit voter participation. Examples from several states and other countries suggest changes that could increase voter participation in the United States. A link to join the webinar will be emailed to those who RSVP.
BCM is proud to host Six@Six Lectures.
