This summer, Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. We highlight the unique story of each of these historic figures as they fought for their rights. This year’s series starts in the 1600s and continues through the modern era.
Join us on July 8th as Mary Ann Jung brings Margaret Brent (1601–1671) to life. A wealthy British woman who resided in St. Mary’s County in Colonial Maryland, in 1648, she became the first woman in Colonial America to request to vote.
1pm: stream of the performance
2pm: live Q&A with Mary Ann Jung and the Maryland Humanities staff
