Hear My Voice: Win the Vote
The final battle for women's voting rights is experienced in this exciting program by Living Voices. Living Voices uses a combination of theatre, video, and live interaction to create a high-impact experience allowing audiences to discover history's relevance to their lives. In this presentation, we follow Jessie, the daughter of a political columnist from Tennessee, as she grows up in the early 1900s and is introduced to the suffrage movement by her great aunt Charlotte.
