The Seventh Annual CUNY BMI conference, “Rock the Vote: The Presidential Election, the Struggle for Voting Rights, and the Future of Urban America,” will feature morning and afternoon keynote lectures as well as morning and afternoon panel discussions.
The general theme of our morning panel discussions will be the struggle for voting rights. We hope that the morning sessions will create a foundation for our afternoon panel discussions by providing general information on the struggle for voting rights leading up to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Additionally, the morning panel discussions will reinforce the importance of exercising one's right to vote in light of the struggle for voting rights.
