The Women’s Suffrage Movement Through Powerful Songs and Stories
October 25, 2020 @ 3:00 pm
Dr. Kathy Bullock et al
Song leaders Dr. Kathy Bullock, Becky Graber, Peggo Horstmann Hodes, and Jane Lowey invite us to join them as they recount the complex, rich, and diverse history of the Women’s Suffrage Movement through powerful songs and compelling stories. This program not only commemorates the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which was ratified 100 years ago, but also shows the many challenges women faced along the way and, more importantly, highlights how racism and white supremacy shaped the outcome. The musical journey Women Sing 100 depicts the evolution of voting rights, highlighting the stories and legacies of the many rarely heard voices, especially those from the African American community. Black and White, we come together to sing of our complicated struggle and claim our voices in this challenging time, in the hope of lighting a fire in our hearts to get out and VOTE this November!
