Black women played a crucial role in the fight for women’s suffrage despite active exclusion from the movement by white suffragists. A century after the 19th Amendment passed, barriers to voting and political involvement continue.

Hear from black women tackling this systemic discrimination through political leadership along with youth activists organizing regional civic education.

Presented in partnership with the Black Heritage Society of Washington State (BHS).
