6:30 pm: Online preview of "The Vote" with Linda Chapin, Sen. Geraldine Thompson
Wednesday, July 1, 2020, 6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Join us July 1 to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment with an advance, online preview of a new PBS documentary, “American Experience: The Vote,” which tells the dramatic story of an epic crusade by American women. The film brings to life the unsung leaders of the suffrage movement, as well as the deep controversies over gender roles and race that divided Americans then — and continue to dominate political discourse today. After a compelling 25-minute clip from the documentary, the Hon. Linda Chapin (the League's Centennial chair) and state Sen. Geraldine Thompson will talk about the suffragists’ legacy and the importance for all Americans of the right to vote. For the link, go to https://www.thehistorycenter.org/event/the-vote/
The full documentary "The Vote" premieres Monday and Tuesday, July 6 and 7, 9-11 p.m. on WUCF, PBS.org, and the PBS Video App.
