August 18th, 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, securing women’s right to vote in the United States. As we honor this momentous anniversary, we also unveil a suffrage movement that silenced the leadership and voices of women and men of color. It would take decades for many women in this country to secure their right to vote after this landmark Amendment. Learn more about the roots of racism within the suffrage movement, and celebrate the visionary black, indigenous and people of color who worked tirelessly to secure the rights of all to vote in this country.
