Rhonda Craig, President of the League of Women Voters Detroit, explores the roles of African Americans in the Suffrage Movement in the United States from before the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention through the passage of the 19th Amendment. There will be time for questions following the presentation.

LWV Detroit and the Detroit Public Library are partnering in talks promoting voter education and tools for action.
