On Thursday, February 14, 12:30-2 PM, Sylvea Hollis, Postdoctoral Fellow at Morgan State University, will present a lecture on Black Women’s Clubs and The Suffrage Movement at the Hays-Heighe House at Harford Community College.

Despite the familiar narrative, middle class white women did not fight for suffrage alone. African American women, who had long been excluded from white women’s Progressive Era organizations, made suffrage one of the many causes they took up in their own women’s clubs. Learn about these organizations and famous individuals who committed to securing women’s rights. No admission fee, but seating is limited. Reservations strongly recommended; please email haysheighe@harford.edu or call 443-412-2539.
