What to the Black Woman is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment?

This presentation by Dr. Susan Goodier, Assistant Professor of History at SUNY Oneonta, seeks to illuminate the experience of the suffrage movement for women of color in New York State and why it is important to better acknowledge their involvement in the passage of the 19th Amendment. Without a clear and comprehensive understanding of the social and political activism of Black women, we do not yet know the full story of women’s suffrage. Black women operated in complicated networks that stretched from community to community, from city to city, and from state to state. By looking more closely at New York State and its Black women activists, we can learn not just about the strategies Black women used to gain the right to vote but about the networks they created to facilitate this achievement.
