CLASS PRESENTATION TALK

Dr. Susan Goodier, Lecturer of History at SUNY Oneonta and Coordinator for the Upstate New York Women's History Organization (UNYWHO).

A Fundamental Component: African American Women in the Suffrage Movement

Abstract: The process of winning suffrage for women was very different for black women. Instead of forming suffrage associations and clubs, they often worked for the right to vote through their churches and social uplift organizations. This presentation will focus on African American women's activism for voting rights, as well as on some of the reasons we don't know as much about that activism as we do about white women's Suffrage activism.
