Judicial Review: Marbury v. Madison
Before we dive into understanding Voting Rights and the ways in which the 3 branches of the government have functioned throughout the history of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 as well as modern disputes about voting discrimination we’re going to learn about how the Supreme Court (Judicial branch) came to play the precise role we know it to play today by studying a Supreme Court case called Marbury v. Madison, 1803.
