“To be disenfranchised is to be told that you do not matter, because the right to vote is about the power that governs your possibilities.” – Professor Marcia Chatelain, The Vote
There’s still time to register for tonight’s webinar at 7:00PM ET, The 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment: The Battle for the Right to Vote. You’ll celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment and learn how suffragists ultimately triumphed after one of the longest civil rights struggles in American history!
Professor Marcia Chatelain, featured scholar in American Experience’s The Vote, will speak about the significant contributions of African-American women in the suffrage movement, and other educators will share new resources from PBS LearningMedia for The Vote. To share lesson ideas — including how to teach the women’s suffrage movement in a history survey course — Professor Chatelain will be joined by GBH Director of Social Studies Curriculum Sue Wilkins and educator Karen Pleasant.
