PastForward 2019: Making the Vote Count - the Legacy of the 19th Amendment on C-SPAN (American History TV) 

02-19-2020 16:43

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s ratification, granting women the right to vote. During this panel, which was recorded for CSPAN, representatives from several institutions, including the National Park Service, National Archives and Library of Congress, talked about their plans for commemorating the centennial and teaching the public about the legacy of women’s suffrage—including a discussion about how, despite the ratification, many women across the country continued to be disenfranchised due to race. 

This discussion took place at PastForward 2019 in Denver, Colorado.
