The Penny Weaver Mystery about the Voter ID Bill
Information Links

A few years ago the N.C. legislature voted in the Voter ID bill. It was aimed at keeping our African American citizens from voting. Voters had to show a photo ID or a passport in order to vote. The ActNow interracial community group took up the fight, and visited the homes of the elderly in Riverdell and New Springs to make sure they had driver's licenses or passports or could get to the DMV to get the photo ID. In the midst of this work, the lead counsel for the NAACP on their court case to strike down this law, was killed on her front doorstep. Penny's friend Kate Razor takes over the lead counsel role. Meantime, Penny's grandson Seb (14) and his friend Sammie's niece Naomi ( 13) discover the joys of sex, alarming the parents and setting off a discussion of what to do next.
