The National Park Service Civil War to Civil Rights Trading Card program is a way to enhance the conversation and personal interactions between park employees and visitors. The program is part of the way that the park service is reaching out to children and their families to learn more about a particular site and make connections that will stimulate deeper quests for knowledge.
Kids, join the growing number of youth in collecting these trading cards which are available at select National Park Service sites. The cards are free and are a memento of your quest for a connection with Your National Parks.
One Man, One Vote
Mr. Willis Wright
Willis Wright, a close friend of the Carter's, was the first African American to successfully register to vote at the Webster County courthouse in 1960 after seeking advice from then Senator Jimmy Carter. Starting in 1958, the Georgia General Assembly required registrants to answer thirty challenging legal questions. The questions were used to screen voters and suppress the African American vote.
