Centennial of Woman Suffrage

The Center has been very involved in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area supported the documentary By One Vote: Woman Suffrage in the South, produced by Nashville Public Television. We also participated in Silent No More: The Story of American Women’s Suffrage, produced by MTSU’s Center for Educational Media in partnership with the American Democracy Project. Teaching with Primary Sources–MTSU held workshops on woman suffrage and has provided a close-reading exercise about ratification for teachers. Staff and students provided the Nashville Opera with assistance for One Vote Won, which focuses on African American women. We have also worked with the Rutherford Arts Alliance and other local partners on the Leading Ladies of Rutherford County History: Women Who Inspire Us community project to commemorate the centennial.
