After loss in court, NC voting rights activists turn attention to mobilizing in the streets

August 12, 2014 - Last week a federal judge denied a request to block North Carolina's restrictive new voting law from being enforced for this November's election. Voting rights activists say they'll redouble efforts to register African-American voters and help them turn out, with a mass voting rights rally planned for Raleigh on Aug. 28 -- the 51st anniversary of the March on Washington.
