Historian Liette Gidlow, the Mellon-Schlesinger Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, will connect the story of the suffrage movement to the struggle for voting rights of the Civil Rights movement and the ongoing struggle around voting rights today. 

This program is the 2020 James Neal Primm Lecture in History, an annual lecture series presented by the University of Missouri-St. Louis. It is associated with the Missouri Historical Society’s current exhibit Beyond the Ballot: St. Louis and Suffrage, on display through March 20, 2022.
