The Women’s Suffrage Centennial:

How Women of Color helped to Win the Vote!

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

The Women's Suffrage Centennial: How women of color helped to win the vote” will reflect on how women of color made a moral, spiritual, and intellectual sense of need that all women should have the right to vote.

We became aware of the historical significance of the newly formed Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s role in the 1913 Suffrage March. Who could tell the story better than the women leading the renowned organization today? Who could help us place the importance of sharing that story than the women leading in our communities, today, i.e. women like our invited moderators?

On Tuesday, November 10th, 6:30 – 8pm; streaming Beverly E. Smith, National President & CEO, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.; Karen Hill, Chair of the National Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission; and Jill Moss Greenberg, Retired Executive Director of the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center. Moderators: Joyce Cotton, Director of Marketing/ Community Partnerships (WEDU-TV) and Dr. Paulette Walker, Past National President & CEO, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Join us for this effectual nonpartisan lively panel discussion to celebrate the 100th year of women rights to vote.
