This summer, Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. We highlight the unique story of each of these historic figures as they fought for their rights. This year’s series starts in the 1600s and continues through the modern era.

Performer and researcher Sherrie Tolliver portrays Mary Church Terrell (1863–1954). Born in Tennessee to two formerly enslaved business owners, Terrell helped to found the National Association for Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the National Association for Colored Women’s Clubs (NACWC) and worked with the National Women’s Party in picketing at the White House in support of women’s suffrage.

A video of the performance will be posted for 1 week on July 20th. Join us Wednesday July 22nd at 1pm as we stream the performance and host a live Q&A with the performer starting at 2pm. Sign up to participate in the Q&A and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win fun prizes. A video of the Q&A will be posted after the live viewing.

Video Available Here on July 20
