August 6th: 53rd Anniversary of Signing of Voting Rights Act

“Today, on the 53rd anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) by President Lyndon Johnson, we celebrate a milestone in American history.  With the stroke of a pen, millions of Americans were ushered into the democratic process.  In 1964 in Holmes County, Mississippi, there were only twelve black registered voters.  By 1965, there were 28,500, and by 1984 there were 406,000.
