Viviette Applewhite, 93, worked as a welder during WW2, marched with Martin Luther King in Georgia, and voted in almost every election since JFK's. But like many older black citizens, she has no birth certificate or driver's license - which means, under Pennsylvania's harsh new voter photo ID law, she can't vote. She can fight, though. She's the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit being filed by the ACLU and NAACP against the law.

"It stinks - they are taking our rigts away."
