The 2013 Supreme Court decision limiting the Voting Rights Act

We are very fortunate to enjoy the gains that were made for all of our rights during the civil rights era, but as we now know with the new administration, there continue to be attempts to undermine those gains. In 2013 the 1965 Voting Rights Act won by civil rights activists, some of whom died to gain it, suffered a blow due to a Supreme Court challenge brought by Shelby county in (surprise, surprise) Alabama.
Please read this New York Times article “Supreme Court Invalidates Key Part of Voting Rights Act”

Also read the NY Daily News Op-Ed “Voting Against Discrimination”
Here is the text of the whole law that you can refer to and read the basic protections given by the law and the specific sections affected by the 2013 Supreme Court ruling
Write a gut reaction to both of these newspaper articles. Also explain how the specific provision of the Voting Rights Act that was struck down worked. What do you think of the arguments by the judges on each side of the argument? (Make note of the judges’ names). Now that this section of the Voting Rights Act has been nullified, what options do people who believe their right to vote is being limited have to regain their full right to vote?
