In the early 20th century, women everywhere were fighting for the right to vote. Black women in the United States also had to battle systematic racism and white-supremacist violence—they developed a national network of clubs and organizations to help advance themselves professionally, politically, and spiritually. Join us to explore the lives of individuals like Ida B. Wells and the history of organizations like the National Association of Colored Women.
