Dr. Kimberly Moffitt, Professor of American Studies at University of Maryland – Baltimore County (UMBC) sits in as our guest host for our weekly news round table. The panel discussion will focus on this week’s release of the Maryland State Assessment scores, showing a slight decline statewide, and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on voting rights, among other topics.
We discuss this week’s Supreme Court decision striking down key provisions of the Voting Rights Act. The ruling allows nine states, mostly in the South, to change their election laws without advance federal approval. Joining us for the discussion are:
Ari Berman, contributing writer for The Nation magazine;
Aderson Francois, Associate Professor of Law at Howard University School of Law;
Michael Higginbotham, Wilson H. Elkins Professor of Law at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
