This hands-on session will explore civic action and social change in the women’s suffrage movement and the long struggle for racial equality. Participants will be introduced to primary sources in a variety of media from across numerous Library of Congress collections related to women suffrage to gain multiple perspectives and draw more comprehensive conclusions; will take a close look at examples from the Rosa Parks Papers; and will have opportunity to consider common threads in both movements.
