This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which granted many women in the US the right to vote. However, 1920 was not the end of the fight for suffrage for many, including women of color and Native American women. The objectives of the event include:
1. Creating a dialogue between the past and present to inform our future.
2. Envisioning a path toward positive change.
3. Cultivating collaborative relationships for working toward positive change.
Dr. Lisa Tetrault, our Keynote Speaker, is a historian of the nineteenth century focusing on social movements (particularly feminism), American democracy, and the politics of memory. Her topic is “When Women Won the Right to Vote: An American Fiction". The panelists in "Table Talk: Reconciling With Our Past", moderated by Donna Chavis, include: Dr. Valerie Ann Johnson, Ms. Cas Shearin, and Ms. Mary Williams Stover. Ms. Mandy Carter will give the Opening Remarks.
