African American Suffrage Movement: Against All Sides

The Detroit League’s collaborative webinar series with the Detroit Public Library begins the 2021 season with The African American Suffrage Movement: Against All Sides, presented by Rhonda Craig, President of LWV Detroit.  Please join us to hear the story of African American women and some men who fought for the right of women to vote in the United States. Rhonda’s discussion focuses on the period before the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, which kicked off the Suffrage Movement, and subsequent events until shortly after the passage of the 19th Amendment. Following the presentation, there will be time for questions.

Sponsored by the Detroit Pubic Library in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Detroit, this monthly forum highlights issues important to voters and our communities.
