    A group of Harvard students took the 1964 Louisiana Literacy Test as part of a project to raise awareness about barriers to voting.

    States in the South issued similar tests some 50 years ago to voters who could not "prove a fifth grade education." They had to pass all 30 questions in 10 minutes to be eligible to vote.

    None of the students passed the test.
