Over summer 2020, Dr. Alison Parker contributed to the commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

Check out her blog post, “Mary Church Terrell: Black Suffragist and Civil Rights Activist,” published in July on the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission blog. This article was republished in On Their Shoulders: The Radical Stories of Women’s Fight for the Vote (Amazon Kindle, September 2020).

Oh, reading isn’t your thing? No problem! You can watch Dr. Parker in conversation in a virtual talk she gave, titled “Black Suffragists, Civil Rights, and the Value of the Vote.” Her talk formed part of the event “Historians’ POV: Women’s Suffrage, Civil Rights, and the Value of the Vote,” co-sponsored by Democrats Abroad, Global Black Caucus, and Global Women’s Caucus in August.
