Progress Made, but the Struggle Continues
Rep. Charles Rangel
Rep. Charles Rangel of New York reflects on how the Civil Rights Movement and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 made it possible for him and others to be elected to Congress, and the current state of voting rights. He said, "The battle continues. The problem is not solved. And, indeed, people lack the courage to honestly discuss the depth of racism in this country and indeed throughout the world."
