Stokes Brown Public Library Presents ‘To Make Our Voices Heard: Tennessee Women’s Fight for the Vote
Exhibition showcases events leading up to Tennessee’s ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Stokes Brown Public Library presents To Make Our Voices Heard: Tennessee Women’s Fight for the Vote, a new traveling exhibition, on display now at the library. The exhibition, created in partnership with the Tennessee State Museum and the Tennessee State Library and Archives, explores the history of the woman’s suffrage movement, Tennessee’s dramatic vote to ratify the 19th Amendment in 1920, and the years that followed.
“We are very excited to be included among the hosts of this exhibit which beautifully depicts key events and people involved in one of the most important political movements of the twentieth century. We hope that our display will be able to educate our patrons about the role Tennessee played in this important chapter in American history. –Michelle Adcock, Director of Stokes Brown Public Library
The exhibition is constructed of multiple dynamic panels, offering guests a touch-free experience of archival images, engaging stories and introductions to the leaders of the fight for and against the cause of woman’s suffrage. The stories begin by detailing the early challenges of racial and gender discrimination and continuing to the organization of African American and white women’s associations to encourage political engagement.
