100 years of Women’s Suffrage
August 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Julia Jennings was my great-grandmother’s older sister. Although I never met her, I began to hear family stories about her from my youngest years. As an adult, I decided to dig deeply into her story both for my own interest and to document the life of one of our nation’s unknown heroes from the Women’s Suffrage movement.
This presentation is both a story of her life AND a story of my own exploration of the contradictions and mysteries of researching an ancestor. Blessed with a rich legacy of photographs, letters, and documentary evidence from Julia’s life, I hope to share a more personal perspective on one woman’s history as we celebrate 100 years of women’s suffrage.
