I'd like to extend a special invitation to AMA members to attend the “Votes for ALL Women: Women of Color and the Fight for Suffrage” program on Thursday, October 6th, at 6:00 p.m. In a discussion moderated by Dr. Cherisse Jones-Branch, panelists Dr. Cathleen Cahill and Dr. Marjorie Spruill will explore the vital, but often overlooked, work done by women of color to ensure votes for all women. This program is a great opportunity to learn more about the suffrage movement, including women who are featured in the Women's Voices, Women's Votes, Women's Rights exhibit at the Clinton Presidential Library & Museum through April 30, 2023.
Clinton Presidential Center Presents is a partnership between the Clinton Foundation, Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas, and Clinton Presidential Library.
This program is supported in part by the National Archives Foundation as well as the Arkansas Humanities Council in conjunction with the Bending Toward Justice lecture series.
The program will be held in-person at the Clinton Center and streamed live online. Click here to register.
I encourage you to attend in person if you feel comfortable doing so. The Clinton Museum Store will be selling copies of Recasting the Vote: How Women of Color Transformed the Suffrage Movement (Cahill 2020) and One Woman, One Vote: Rediscovering the Woman Suffrage Movement (Spruill 2021). Cathleen and Marjorie will be signing books after the program.
If you have any questions about the program, I can be reached at (870) 543-9975. Thanks.
