There will be a brief business session at 7:00 pm, followed by the program & refreshments.
March is National Women’s History Month. We welcome back perennial favorite Rick Spencer for this historical music program. Featured will be some of the most engaging and interesting songs of the women’s suffrage crusade, with historical commentary in commemoration of the approaching centennial of the 19th amendment.
The struggle for women’s suffrage was a hard-fought step toward gender equality. Music was one of the significant tools of the movement. Songs were composed to advance (and to oppose) the agenda that culminated in ratification of the 19th amendment on August 18, 1920, ending almost a century of protest.
