Discovering New York Suffrage Stories Panel Discussion

Panel Discussion for Discovering New York Suffrage Stories | January 26

Join us for a panel discussion focusing on "Discovering New York Suffrage Stories" as we examine the themes surrounding this local film.

WNED PBS Executive Producer Lynne Bader will host a sneak peek and panel discussion to explore the intersection of women's voting rights and race. While most white women leaders of the movement were largely focused on suffrage, Black women were also fighting for civil rights and equality for their race. Voting was just one of the rights they were fighting for. This caused rifts in the movement and splintered alliances. Dig deeper into the issue by attending this free panel discussion and learn how similar divides continue today.

Join Buffalo Toronto Public Media on Tuesday, January 28 at 7pm for this free live virtual event.
