Step back in time. Join us for “Emblem of Equality: Woman Suffrage in WNY” in a “Soup and Tour” adventure.

The History Center’s Soup and Tour event will take place on Saturday, February 8th from 12 – 3 pm.

Guiding us on this tour will be Susan Eck, who will take us through the efforts of gifted Buffalo columnist, Ada Davenport Kendall, who heroically advocated for women’s rights. Eck will bring “Emblem of Equality” to life with a presentation and a lively narration based upon her research and knowledge. Her program will highlight Ada Kendall’s journey organizing woman’s suffrage in the late 19th century.  Learn about all Ada did, and how she wrote about how transformative women’s suffrage would be for nearly 18 years. Hear her words as Susan leads us through history and explains why Ada was willing to go to prison for her cause.

“Soup and Tour” will begin with a variety of homemade soups and desserts, followed by the Emblem of Equality presentation. Reservations are required by calling the History Center at, (716) 434-7433. The suggested donation is $5 per person.

What better way to spend a cold Saturday in February than hot soup followed by a spirited performance about women’s’ right to vote? Please join us as we re-visit the world of 1920 with our tour guide Susan Eck.
