Hindus Too Brunette To Vote Here

The Problem: A 5-part Series

On February 19, 1923, the U.S. Supreme Court decided unanimously to bar South Asians from becoming American citizens.

The March 10 issue of The Literary Digest celebrated this decision. "Hindus Too Brunette To Vote Here," it declared, with a photograph of a South Asian man accompanied simply with the caption: "The Problem."

In this new 5-part series, we're exploring what led up to the 1923 decision, its impact on the community then, and its continued ramifications today.

In this election year, it is crucial for our community to know and engage with this history.

Please share this story with your loved ones. And, if you can, please vote… it was a hard-fought right!
