A 93-year-old activist at the center of a lawsuit challenging North Carolina’s restrictive voting laws told MSNBC host Al Sharpton on Wednesday that the climate surrounding Gov. Pat McCrory’s (R) GOP-backed legislation brought back unpleasant memories of the Jim Crow era of her youth.“I can’t imagine that I’ve got to go through the same thing I went through 80 years ago,” Rosanell Eaton told Sharpton. “I can’t imagine going through it again. But I am going through it and it’s actually worse than it was then.”
