Bone McAllester Norton attorney William J. “Paz” Haynes III wrote a piece for the Nashville Bar Journal (tag) called “150 Years of Amendment 15: The Continual Struggle for African American Voting.” In it, Paz explores the history of race-based voter suppression and highlights the lack of voting rights enforcement that is still evident today.
He writes, “As we celebrate the 150th year of the 15th Amendment, the right to the ballot has been hard won by Americans of color. History, however, teaches us to be vigilant as it can only be sustained through exercising the right to vote and supporting legal and civic mobilization to protect it.”
