Virtual Exhibit: "Access Delayed—African American Suffragist’s Courageous Influence on the 19th Amendment"

Texas Folklife virtually exhibits a curated collection of quilts created by Quilt Friends Collective, comprised of African American quilters from across Texas, Ohio, and Florida. The quilts are intended to educate, celebrate, and recognize some of the African American suffragists who influenced and contributed greatly to the suffrage efforts made to gain the right to vote for all women with the ratification of the 19th Amendment, although they remained disenfranchised until the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

When:

Feb. 19-Dec. 31

Where:

Virtual AUSTIN, Texas
