    Strategies of Black Women Suffragists – Marcia Chatelain, Professor of African American Studies at Georgetown University

    One- hundred years ago on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment, which confirmed women have the right to vote, officially became part of the U.S. Constitution.  But not black women, despite many black women suffragists fighting just as hard as white women for the rights of all women to vote.

    Black women suffragists were quite strategic though, as you’ll hear as you listen to professor Marcia Chatelain, professor of history and African American Studies at Georgetown University. Dr. Chatelain also has a fascinating take on the impact of Senator Kamala Harris as the Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee.

    You'll hear: 
    How black women managed the racial tensions within the suffrage movement. Stories of remarkable black women suffragists who played a critical role in successful passage of the Amendment. Strategies the black women suffragists employed to make sure their voices were heard. Her surprising take on the impact of Kamala Harris as the Democratic VP Nominee. Plus, insightful career advice!
