Lucy Sullivan & the 19th Amendment - Shared screen with speaker view
I currently live in AZ but I lived in KS (Fort Scott) for 10 years before I moved to OK for ten years…the Watkins is AMAZING!!!!!
are there links to the events that are being mentioned
I actually am a co-host of the television show Around Kansas with Deb Goodrich. I work remote from AZ and recently I featured Susan B. Anthony and Olympia Brown and the 1867 stump tour for suffrage!
thank you I found this from the library
Question: Was Lucy involved in the abolition and temperance movements as well? Do we know how she felt about the extension of suffrage to African American men and women and other women of color including Indigenous, Hispanic, and Asian-American women?
Did Lucy correspond with other women involved in the suffrage movement that perhaps letters exist in other archives that might help us learn more about her views?
Do you think that the end of her term also marked the end of Lucy's political influence in Baldwin (or in Kansas)? Is there evidence that she stayed active as a gadfly, or as a general leader in the community? Was local backlash against her term so entrenched that such influence wasn't possible?
I've heard there were a handful of women that preached (mostly Methodist?) in the late 19th century; was that something that Lucy Sweet ever did, or was her dedication to ministry more in support of her husband?
I live near Women’s Bridge and I have read the sign.
I knew about her and the Womens Bridge
I had never heard of her. But I've only been in Kansas for one and a half years.
Lifelong Kansas but I did not know about her.
Thrilled that you all are honoring her this way!!
When first moving to BC 20+ years ago, the Women's Bridge and the first female mayor was brought forward as something unique about the community..
Great program—thanks Brittany and Sarah! You have added an important story to our Douglas County and Baldwin history!
Is the women's bridge easy to find?
I want to share something
Sara it is at the end of 11 th street. 11th and High
I have really enjoyed this I watched a program from a Maryland library today also about women's voting. Both that and this were great!
it is too long to write
This also inspires to get our Friends group to do something like this.
Wendy I'm muted
Thank you Dianne!
We have a strong history to be proud of. Yay for all the amazing women that have gone before us!
it looked sarah and Dianne have the same pattern dress/top is that related to suffragates
Dianne if you need resources for your classes you can contact the Baldwin City Library we have a lot of the history on file.
I hope I can join some more of these. please let me know
Might the Coal Creek Library be a resource?
This has been fantastic. What an interesting topic and I hope that we can find more about Lucy!
On facebook make sure you look at Baldwin City Library. there is another baldwin library that is not us. ;)
Thank you for hosting, Wendy!
When I finish my PhD dissertation maybe I will have to look into her
We should share her info with the schools I recall big celebrations for ks day in January
