A Dream fulfilled?

African Americans Voting in America:

"SEC. 2. No voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure shall be imposed or applied by any State or political subdivision to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color."
 (From the Voting Rights Act of 1965)

  - 16.1 million African Americans vote as of 2004-2008. That number reaches 65% of African Americans who voted. That is a 5 percentage increase in the number of voters making it #1 in the turnout levels for all races. A really positive turnout for African Americans.
Voting in the 1960's
Picture of the March on Washington in August 1963. The bars represent that African-Americans were not yet able to vote in a free way without having the fear of being killed or lynched by racisits.
Picture of 2 African American women voting in 2008. The waves display that the ability of blacks to vote has changed in a positive way since the Civil Rights Act in 1965. Still not all blacks who can vote do actually vote. That's why there is still space between the waves.
