Hard One, Not Done

 

A commemoration of the 100-Year Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment from an Iowa Perspective

Lunch & Learn: Toward a Universal Suffrage

Start: 
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - 12:00pm
End: 
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - 1:00pm

Women of color were often left out of the broader conversation around women’s suffrage rights. Before and after the ratification of the 19th Amendment, non-white women were often discriminated against and blocked from voting by various discriminatory measures. To tell their stories, the Central Iowa Community Museum and its partners have created a traveling exhibit focusing on African-American suffragists in Iowa. Grab your lunch and learn about the stories of these women that were often unwritten or overlooked from lecturers Eric Morse, Central Iowa Community Museum, and Kristen Corey,
Office on the Status of Women. The traveling exhibit also will be on display at the State Historical Museum of Iowa for viewing. Advanced registration is required and pre-ordered boxed lunches are available through Café Barattas.

This program is part of the State Historical Society of Iowa's 19 Amendment Centennial Celebration. American women started voting nationwide after the 19th Amendment went into effect on Aug. 26, 1920. A hundred years later, the State Historical Society of Iowa commemorates that milestone -- and the
Iowans who marched toward it -- with a series of monthly programs and events through August.
