Casting a Historic Vote: Suffrage in Illinois
Sunday, July 21, 2:00 pm
Illinois State Museum Auditorium
Free and open to the public
The struggle for enfranchisement began with the birth of our nation and was strategized differently in our local, state, and federal elections. Jeanne Schulz Angel will explain the paths walked by female leaders in our state. She will show how the diverse group of activists fought against sexism and racism and for the right to vote.
This program is part of the "Standing on Her Shoulders" series presented by Academy of Lifelong Learning at LLCC and the Illinois State Museum with the support of Illinois Humanities. An additional program will take place in September. All programs will take place in the Thorne Deuel Auditorium. For more information, contact email@example.com or (217) 558-6696.
