The Battle Ain't Over, a play based on actual events in the time when African Americans would change the face of history and a new era of change for all Americans would take place, will be held on Saturday and Sunday.
This free community event will be held at Tennessee Temple University; Chauncey Goode Auditorium; 1815 Union Ave. at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday.
The play involves three families in the rural south in the 60s when Dr. King was active with marches and protests for the rights of all Americans. The play depicts the different struggle each one had to endure to earn their own right to vote. Even though they went through different obstacles the outcome was the same. The play is written by Brandalyn Shropshire, Kimberly Christian and Sabrina Patton.
The Chattanooga Voter Empowerment Team is a non-partisan group working to bring awareness to the recent changes in the law that requires voters to present a state or federal government issued photo ID to vote. Their goal is to provide education on election issues without endorsing candidates.
A panel of community leaders will be available to share their story or thoughts on why people should exercise the right to vote.
