Description
This episode of The MacNeil/Lehrer Report looks at the debate on whether to extend the Voting Rights Act. Critics argue the Act is no longer needed, while supporters say ending it will eliminate the progress of minority voices. Robert MacNeil and Charlayne Hunter-Gault discuss the issue with people on both sides of the argument.
