The City Tech Library is commemorating the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a landmark piece of legislation that prohibits racial discrimination in voting.  There are books on display on the voting rights act and civil rights more generally.  The book display is located near the library entrance.

Also, we have videos relating to the Act in Kanopy, our video streaming database:
