"This is not a boring history of nagging spinsters; it is a badass history of revolution staged by political geniuses."
-- Kate Clarke LeMay, Historian and Curator
Spend a lively evening with Elaine Weiss, author of "The Woman's Hour", a riveting account of the final battle for the 19th Amendment in Tennessee, and Savannah Wood, editor of "To the Front: Black Women and the Vote", a striking collection of articles and photographs from the Baltimore Afro. Each speaker will make brief presentations about their work, then lead participants in a freewheeling conversation about the hard-fought struggle for Women's Suffrage and the role, in Baltimore and beyond, of Black Women Activists.
Ticket purchasers receive a signed copy of “The Woman’s Hour”, a PDF of "To the Front", and a delicious soul food meal from Ida B.’s Table.
