U.S. DEMOCRACY: 2020 marks an important year for U.S. democracy. This year, America will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, officially granting women the right to vote, and our nation will elect our 46th president. Throughout 2020, and in advance of America’s 250th anniversary in 2026 known as the “Semiquincentennial,” PBS will provide quality programming to highlight what it means to be an engaged citizen in a democratic nation. For a successful democracy, civic engagement is crucial; “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” depends upon it. We hope these books will inspire understanding, voting, and engaged citizenship.
