2020 Black History Exhibit - Black History Remember, Educate, Celebrate.

This part of a larger exhibit at the Petaluma Historical Library and Museum and looks at African Americans and the Vote. 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) that gave black men the vote following the Civil War. It also marks the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment and the culmination for the women’s suffrage movements. We will look at the roll that African American women and men played in the suffrage movement and how the Fifteenth Amendment affected the women’s suffrage movement. Through pictures, information and film scripts we will share how African Americans were highly visible in the fight for women’s suffrage despite many obstacles. The exhibit will include both national and local participants in the fight for the vote and where we are today.


Presented by Petaluma Blacks for Community Development this exhibit will run through March 15, 2020

Hours of Operation

Petaluma Historical Library and Museum, 20 4th Street, Petaluma
