The Florida Commission on the Status of Women is excited to continue our Florida Suffrage Tea Time, a virtual series of monthly fun and informative interviews, lectures, and discussions on the Women’s Suffrage Movement. You bring your tea and internet, and we’ll provide the rest!
In August we are joining with Florida Humanities and the Florida Women’s Suffrage Commission to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. On this day in 1920, Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the amendment giving women the right to vote. Join us for this special panel discussion with Commissioner Lady Dhyana Ziegler, Ph.D., and University of Florida professors Dr. Sharon Austin and Dr. Ashley Preston, as they explore the involvement and legacy of African American women in the women’s suffrage movement.
The conversation is free, but you need to RSVP to receive a personalized link to this virtual event.
