Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated Alpha Omega Chapter is a Community Partner for the City Club Virtual Forum - Missing from History: Black Suffragists and the Right to Vote.
The featured speaker is Paula J. Giddings, Elizabeth A. Woodson 1922 Professor Emerita of Africana Studies at Smith College.
Join us as Giddings discusses the 19th Amendment: the political tradition of African American women, their struggle to be enfranchised, and how their activism led to the influence that Black women have on today’s electorate. This is a history far too little known and one which adds depth, complexity, and richness to the quest for women’s rights.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
