As the federal trial over North Carolina's election overhaul continues in Winston-Salem this week, one word has come up over and over again: disenfranchised. The U.S. Justice Department, the state NAACP and others contend the changes disenfranchised some African-Americans in 2014.
Lawyers suing North Carolina have called more than a dozen witnesses to testify about how they were deprived of their right to vote.
Reverend Moses Colbert from Cleveland County was one of them. The 60-year-old African-American went to vote early during last year's midterm election.
