Members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) hold signs in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington on June 25, 2013. The court struck down a key part of the Voting Rights Act, which guards against racial discrimination in US states with a segregationist past. In a hotly anticipated decision, the court ruled 5-4 that Section 4 of the 1965 law was unconstitutional, calling on Congress to redefine which states must seek government approval for changes to their electoral codes.
