She Changed the World - 19th Amendment Traveling Exhibit at the Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum

Event Description

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and passage of the 19th Amendment, it did not grant voting rights for all, specifically women of color. The ongoing fight for equity continues today. While we celebrate the women who led the struggle, we also honor the women who inspired them.

Join us on Saturday, April 18th to celebrate and commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment. View the State Archives of North Carolina's traveling exhibit, "An Absolute Moral Certainty: The Woman Suffrage Movement in North Carolina," view North Carolina's original copy of the 19th Amendment, enjoy a Read-In hosted by the Alamance-Guilford Section of the National Council of Negro Women from 12pm-2pm, create Suffrage crafts to take home, and register to vote with the League of Women Voters of the Piedmont Triad.
