New York Public Library: Free Author Talk Series w/CUNY Professor Julie C. Suk
March 2, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: New York Public Library – Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Wachenheim Trustees Room
On the hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, a new history of the suffrage movement celebrates the bold women who fought for the vote.
The suffrage movement was “a 75-year marathon through the very core of American history,” writes Ellen Carol DuBois. The 19th amendment was ratified in 1920, but the heroic efforts to get it passed extend back prior to the Civil War. In Suffrage DuBois explores the early links between abolition and suffrage and the collaboration between Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony with Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglass. And she follows through successive generations of leaders like Carrie Chapman Catt and Alice Paul, who brought the fight into the 20th century—and Ida B. Wells-Barnett, who demanded voting rights for African American women even as white suffragists ignored them.
DuBois visits the Library to discuss the history of suffrage, and the many ways in which the passing of the 19th amendment shaped the century that followed. She will be joined in conversation by CUNY Grad Center dean and professor of Sociology, Julie C. Suk.
FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED
For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. All registered seats are released shortly before start time, and seats may become available at that time. A standby line will form one hour before the program.
