Sonoma County 2020 Women's Suffrage Project
January 25 - September 20, 2020
2020 is the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, giving women the constitutional right to vote. While different in goal and origin, the recent #MeToo movement and women’s marches also represent pivotal change and the power of the collective voice to challenge the status quo. The Museum of Sonoma County’s exhibition, From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County, explores the changing expectations, challenges, and obstacles to inclusion that women have faced and the remarkable people who have broken through the barriers.

“Black History Remember, Educate, Celebrate“-2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the Fifteenth Amendment which gave the right of black men to vote following the Civil War. It also marks the centennial of the Nineteenth amendment and the culmination of the women’s suffrage movement.
Remember: Africans Americans and the Vote. Black males were given the vote in 1870 and the ratification of the 19th Amendment gave black women the right to vote, but were they really able to cast their ballots or are there still some road blocks today? The exhibit will have pictures and information about the African American struggle for the vote.
Educate: Major events in American history attributed to African Americans. Learn about the inventions, the black women computers during the race for space and the many records set by African American sports figures.
