Ban on Interracial Marriage
(CNN)This Election Day, Alabama voters once again will decide whether to remove racist language from the state’s constitution and other sections that ground it in its segregationist past.
Although segregation hasn’t been legal in Alabama since the 1950s, a section remains in the state’s constitution requiring Black and White children to attend schools separated by race. There are also sections in the state constitution on poll taxes, the rights of men — and only men — to vote in the state and the statewide ban on interracial marriage.
Project RACE urges Alabama voters to vote to remove the racist language.
