The Great Demand: Confronting the 19th Amendment

From Lucy Stone and Ida B. Wells, to Jovita Idár and Fannie Lou Hamer, the struggle for equal access to the ballot box has persisted across generations. Now, in this critical election year, it's our turn to “finish the fight!” Through a selection of short plays that uplift the often ignored voices in the quest for suffrage, and in conversation with organizers working to address disparities in voting access today, this digital event combines art and advocacy to celebrate how far we've come and look forward to the work that still remains to achieve true universal suffrage.
