Camp History @ Home: Women March
August 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Suggested Ages: 8 to 12
Join New-York Historical Society via Zoom to explore the exhibition Women March and be inspired by Vashti Harrison’s celebrated book Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History. Explore the power of collective action both before and after the historic 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted some women the right to vote, and discover the stories of powerful Black women who shaped American history.
Use primary sources, archival materials, and conversations with subject specialists to build research skills in order to uncover unsung heroes of the women’s movement such as Sarah T. Garnet and Mable Lee. Self-publish a “who’s who” picture book of women’s rights activists that will help inspire the next generation of feminists.
For ages 8-12.
