Celebrate Black History Month by joining Gabriella Leone, Curator of Women of the Nation Arise!, for a look at the arguments suffragists made in favor of women’s participation in government. Learn about local suffragists such as Drusilla Poole, whose organization the Women’s Civic and Political Union formed in 1919 to teach Black women on Staten Island about politics and encourage them to vote.
