Voice of the Voiceless has a Suffrage event on February 29. It will honor and recognize African American women who were part of the journey to get the right to vote.

This show case will be held at the public works building from 3 till 5 pm.

Women leaders from across the city have agreed to sing, act, or do a reading about different African American women. We are also currently holding an essay project for children in grade 5 through 12 to research an unknown African American woman and write a two page essay. These essays will be compiled and published in a book called Shades of Suffrage. That is also the name of the event.

All children will receive medallions and certificates, and we are also going to recognize and honor several women leaders.
