Many Stories: Votes for Women: The Southern Story

Learn about the story of the women's suffrage movement in Mississippi with special guest Marjorie J. Spruill, Distinguished Professor Emerita of the University of South Carolina, as we honor Women's History Month in this edition of the #ManyStories Series. Spruill will discuss the legacies of Reconstruction, reforms of the Progressive Era, and the white supremacist attitudes of Mississippi's early suffragettes such as Nellie Nugent Somerville and Carrie Belle Kearney. The program will stream live from the Museum of Mississippi History's Facebook page.
