Staying that 2020 is the centennial of the nineteenth Amendment’s ratification, this would be a wonderful yr to stop by Seneca Falls, an historic suffrage and social justice hub and the web page of the Nationwide Women’s Convention in 1848. And the Women’s Legal rights Nationwide Historical Park had prepared on hosting a splashy Equality Weekend this yr, though like most substantial gatherings, programs had to pivot from in-individual to digital gatherings. Now dubbed Digital Equality Weekend, the gatherings of Saturday and Sunday have been moved from the park to on the net boards, but you can however take part in commemorations and lectures that pack Saturday and Sunday.
Highlights on Saturday, August 22, include the United States Postal Service’s unveiling of the Suffrage Centennial stamp — which I plan to order a substantial amount of, to do my part to aid help save the USPS from tyranny — and displays on Harriet Tubman and a nineteenth Modification comic anthology. Sunday’s programs focus on historic and up to date local figures in Women’s Legal rights.
Digital Equality Weekend will take area Saturday and Sunday, August 22-23, kicking off at 11 a.m. each and every day. Free to “attend” by way of livestream on Fb and Youtube.
