(Chicago, IL) Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. gives this analysis on SCOTUS Voting Rights Act decision……The 1965 Voting Rights Act was the implementing legislation in fulfillment of the 15th Amendment – 95 years later. In other words, it took 95 years – along with agitation, the murders of voting rights workers and a Selma-to-Montgomery march – in order to stimulate the Congress to write, and the President to sign legislation (a law), that made the 15th Amendment enforceable and effective in the real world.
