The year 2020, in addition to being an election year, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s ratification and the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment’s ratification. MdHS’s upcoming virtual exhibition, Forgotten Fight: The Struggle for Voting Rights in Maryland explores the long, combative road that Marylanders walked to get their right to be heard. But who were these champions?
This month, as we honor the women who devoted their life to women’s suffrage, MdHS presents “Unlocking the Exhibition: The Women of Forgotten Fight.” Join Joe Tropea, MdHS’s Curator of Films & Photographs, Mallory Herberger, Special Collections Archivist, and Ashlee Anderson, Digital Learning Specialist as they talk about finding the forgotten figures who forged the path in women’s suffrage. Learn how suffragists were uncovered and brought to light through the MdHS collections, and the valuable work they did for women’s rights.
This virtual program is free and open to all audiences. Registration is required. After registering for the program, attendees will receive an automated confirmation email with connection instructions. We will connect via Zoom which, is available for free download here: https://zoom.us.download.
