On Tuesday, Sep. 22 at 3 p.m., Auburn University Libraries’ Discover Auburn Lecture Series will host associate professor of History and Women’s Studies faculty affiliate Dr. Melissa Blair for a lecture entitled “New Faces and New Obstacles: Current Interpretations of the Fight for Women’s Suffrage.” This lecture will be presented remotely and anyone is welcome to attend by joining via Zoom at https://auburn.zoom.us/j/93584671400

Dr. Blair’s talk will focus on the role of women of color in the suffrage fight, why their contributions were ignored for so long, and how the 19th Amendment was the end of one fight but, for Black Southern women, the beginning of another.

For those not able to attend live, the program will be recorded and available to view approximately one week after the live date at: https://www.lib.auburn.edu/discoverauburn/

This program is co-sponsored by Auburn University Libraries and the AU Women’s Studies Program.
