In the years after the Civil War, laws denying the vote to those convicted of certain crimes were revised and re-interpreted to target newly-enfranchised African Americans in the South. Living in Infamy uncovers the origins of felon disfranchisement and traces the expansion of the practice to felons regardless of race and its spread beyond the South, establishing a system that affects the American electoral process today.
