A Juneteeth Celebration: Black Women Lead

June 19, 2020 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm EDT

The African American Caucus-WCDP in conjunction with the Southern Wake Democrats are excited to have you join us for our 2nd Annual Black Women Lead conversation event. With this year being the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment we have centered our theme on the history of all women’s voting rights.

Our goal this year is to educate and inspire by highlighting a few black women that were part of the women’s suffrage movement and beyond. Although the 19th amendment passed in 1920, some black women were denied voting rights due to restrictive state and local laws. Full exercise of black voting rights was intended with the Voting Rights Act of 1965; however, even today some states continue to erect barriers to black voting.
