African-American Women & the Suffrage Movement
Join us on November 19th, at 2 PM for an engaging and enlightening virtual history lesson!
Dr. Lillian Williams, Associate Professor for the Department of Transnational Studies at the University at Buffalo, will discuss the strides African-American women made in order to gain equal rights and their freedom from the confines of society. Dr. Williams looks at women in the 1890s and early 1900s. She’s an expert on the National Association of Colored Women, founded in 1896, and Mary Talbert, a Buffalo suffragist and civil rights pioneer who helped plan the Niagara Movement, which later became the NAACP.
