More than four million Americans, mainly poor, black, and Latino, have lost the right to vote. In some states, as many as a third of all African-American men cannot take part in the most basic right of a democracy. The reason? Felony disenfranchisement laws. Award-winning journalist Sasha Abramsky takes us on a journey through disenfranchised America, detailing the revival of antidemocratic laws that came of age in the post–Civil War segregationist South.
