California kept prison factories open. Inmates worked for pennies an hour as COVID-19 spread

Amid the drive for production, factories continued to operate even as infections increased inside prison walls, according to interviews with more than 30 inmates at the women’s prison. #covid #prisons #news #california

Inmates who made masks and furniture for as little as 35 cents an hour say they felt pressure to stay on the job, even as the coronavirus spread through the prison factories.

BLACK ELECTORATE FACT: GA, TX, FL, VA, NC – all swing or battleground states where Biden ramped up campaign efforts due to large electorate. More than 1/3 of Black voters live in nine of the most competitive states. #vote #ivote #itsmyvote #election2020 #electionday #politics

BLACK ELECTORATE FACTS: Since the 1970s, the US has experienced a reverse migration in which Black Americans move from northern cities back to the south. Most often, it’s to communities where they were born or where their families were rooted before the Great Migration – an era between 1916 and 1970 when 6 million African Americans escaped segregation and discrimination in the south, to pursue jobs up north. #vote #ivote #itsmyvote #election2020 #electionday #politics

Motivations Vary as African Diaspora Vote in US Election

@pewresearch found that Black immigrants are a growing voting bloc. Between 2000 and 2018, the number of immigrants in the Black electorate rose from 800,000 to 2.3 million. #vote #ivote #itsmyvote #election2020 #electionday #politics

For most African immigrants in the United States, the right to vote is precious. Ivo Tasong, a Cameroonian American who immigrated to the U.S. in 1986, said voting is something he will never take for granted. “Being fortunate to migrate and come and live in the United States, that civic duty canno...

Poll taxes, literacy tests, fraud and intimidation all turned African Americans away from the polls. Until the Supreme Court struck it down in 1915, many states used the "grandfather clause " to keep descendents of slaves out of elections. The clause said you could not vote unless your grandfather had voted -- an impossibility for most people whose ancestors were slaves. #votinghistory #vote
