Jones will follow young Lewis to stories of voting prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, which she will explain. Voting problems that still exist after 1965 will be addressed, as well as how to close the gap today. A proud lifetime learner, Jones has a degree in education from SUNY Cortland and her Masters in Public Administration from Marist. She is Vice President of the1886 Benevolent Society Board of Managers, a member of the Madison County Democrat executive committee, and the Secretary and Membership Chair of the NAHOF Cabinet of Freedom.
