About This Event:
SUFFRAGE. RACE. POWER.
Changing the Narrative
Join us on 11/14 for a reception and film screening of the documentary Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. This event will be the launch pad for a year-long exploration of the rich history of African American women whose activism for women's suffrage has been overlooked. We will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment by exploring the history of feminism with its roots in abolition of slavery to apply an intersectional lens to examine the role of race, class, gender and gender identity leading to the right to vote. We'll bring the conversation full circle to the issue of women in leadership and the power of their vote in the pivotal 2020 Presidential elections.
*This event is free for all, light refreshments will be served.*
