Black Suffragists’ Role in the Suffragette Movement
September 30 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDTFree
Through stories and songs, this session will explore the journey and the contributions of African American women in their struggle for the Right to Vote in the U.S., highlighting African American suffragists from the early 1800s up to the Voting Rights Act in 1965 and beyond. While the year 2020 has marked the centennial celebration of the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the United States, too often the voices and contributions of African American women have been underrepresented or omitted in this celebration. We will uplift and honor those profound voices, voices that continue to inspire us all today.
