Power of Black Women Voters – Marcia Chatelain, Prof. African American History, Georgetown University

Black women voters were a force in the 2020 election and are going forward and their rights are under attack in states anew today as a result of their power. Where did their activism start?

Listen to this remarkable interview with Marcia Chatelain – Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University – tell great stories about the black women suffragists who fearlessly helped women finally get their vote ratified, with the 19th Amendment 100 years ago. The Amendment did not explicitly grant black women their own voting rights.

Dr. Chatelain also has a fascinating take on the impact of Senator Kamala Harris as Vice President. (This was recorded prior to the 2020 election.)
