100 Years and Counting!:
African American Women in the Suffrage Movement

We invite you to attend "100 Years and Counting!: African American Women in the Suffrage Movement", an interactive program to commemorate the ratification of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which granted most American women the right to vote in 1920. Lead by mostly white women, the suffrage movement that began in the nineteenth century was strengthened by the support of African American women like Sojourner Truth, Frances Harper, Mary Church Terrell, and Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Our program will highlight the accomplishments of these African American women and others that have remained invisible in the history of the women’s suffrage movement. The program is designed to celebrate these black women and to inspire the next generation of 21st century suffragists! 

Date & Time: March 13, 10:00 a.m. 
Location: Eureka. 410 E. Sixth Street. Hattiesburg, MS.
Registration is required and space is limited. Please call 601-450-1942 to register.
