Solidarities: White Women and Women of Color's Activism to Secure the Vote INT 100/201 APPROVED!

The Nineteenth Amendment ostensibly provided women the right to vote; yet, access to voting was not equal as Black, Indigenous, women of color remained disenfranchised. This live Zoom webinar will place women's suffrage in conversation with the broader movement toward civil rights for Black, indigenous, people of color. 

Nationally-recognized scholars Liette Gidlow and Allison Lange join Sophia Brewer and Jo Ellyn Clarey from the Greater Grand Rapids Women's History Council in exploring white women and Black, indigenous, women of color's efforts to secure the vote.
