“So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself. I cannot make up my mind – it is made up for me. I cannot live as a democratic citizen, observing the laws I have helped to enact – I can only submit to the edict of others.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act. 4Culture and King County will highlight this achievement during our 2015 celebration. All are welcome!
