“Votes for Suffrage: 100 Years of Women in Durham Politics” Opening RecapPosted on September 30, 2020
Due to the Museum of Durham History’s closure during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned to online programming, including the opening event for our Votes for Suffrage: 100 Years of Women in Durham Politics exhibit. We were pleased to have about 50 attendees sign on for the Friday night event!
On behalf of the presenting sponsor, The Snyderman Foundation, Renee Snyderman presented the exhibit in honor of MaryAnn Black who was a trailblazer in Durham politics and a founding MoDH board member. State Representative Vernetta Alston and County Commissioner Ellen Reckhow also made remarks on the importance of women’s participation in politics and the gravity of the upcoming 2020 election.
Be sure to check out our upcoming events for ongoing program for Votes for Suffrage: 100 Years of Women in Durham Politics.
Special thanks to our sponsors for making our programming possible:
