Roland Martin talks to author Ari Berman about his new book, Give Us The Ballot, The Modern Struggle For Voting Rights in America. He talks about the states that seek to limit voting rights, from 1965 to present day.
“We essentially ignored the 15 amendment for a hundred years. Unfortunately it’s been challenged over a 50-year period. What should be settled is remains the most contested. There is no fundamental right to vote in this country, which is why it’s always contested,” Berman said.
