June 27 - Seventeenth Annual Platform Lecture
Dr. Sarah Bell: 19th & 20th Century Women's Political Activities seen through the Lens of the Chautauqua Movement
7:30 PM, Chautauqua Town Hall or Auditorium
This event was cancelled for the past two years, and we are pleased to reschedule it.
Dr. Sarah Bell is the Membership Coordinator for the Watkins Museum of History in Lawrence, Kansas. Her history Ph.D degree was conferred by Kansas University in May 2019.
She will speak on women's political aspirations and activities in the late 19th and 20th centuries as seen through the lens of the Chautauqua movement.
2020 was the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution to provide the vote to women so her topic is timely indeed.
