Town Hall Talk
Suffrage Era Postcards
Longtime human rights activist Carol Crossed purchased and restored the Susan B. Anthony birthplace in Adams, Massachusetts in 2006. Her book, Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards, is an amusing and insightful look back at the women’s suffrage movement. She will explore both domestic and political views of the topic as found through vintage postcards, the social media of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Town Hall Talk starts at 6 pm with check-in and refreshments, and the lecture begins at 6:30 pm. This event is FREE for members of both the Boca Raton Historical Society and the League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County, $10 for guests.
“We are pleased to co-host our upcoming Town Hall Talk on the suffrage era with the League of Women Voters, which came to life as an organization at the same time that women got the vote,” says Mary Csar, the museum’s executive director, who also acknowledged the event’s official sponsor, Renee Johnson, JP Morgan Private Bank.
“The League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County is proud to co-host this timely, thoughtful, and amusing visual examination of the suffrage era, looking at the lives and lifestyles of women who were finding their voice and becoming an ever-growing force in our democratic process—and the backlash to it,” says Kathi Gundlach, LWVPBC president.
