March ZOOM MEETING
Dr. Mona Siegel
Dr. Seigel will be discussing the remarkable international career of suffragist and civil rights activist Mary Church Terrell. From picketing the White House to meeting with global diplomats in Paris, Terrell was at the forefront of the battle for women’s rights and racial justice in the late 19th and early 20th century. She was also one of the first African-American women to earn a college degree.
Considering that we have recently celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment (Women’s Right to Vote), this is a timely and important topic.
Dr. Mona Siegel is a CSU Sacramento history professor and author of Peace on Our Terms: The Global Battle for Women’s Rights After the First World War.
