In keeping with its theme of celebrating the centennial of U.S. Women’s Suffrage, the Public Research Fellows Initiative is hosting a Spring Symposium on Friday, March 13. The symposium will showcase current Public Research Fellows projects as well as a roundtable discussion featuring local elected officials, activists, and historians speaking about women’s voting today. The keynote address, “Trust Black Women: The Importance of Black Women in U.S. Politics,” will be delivered by Brittney Cooper (pictured), author of Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower. All members of the UP community are welcome, as well as friends, family, neighbors, and others, to join in this celebration of women’s suffrage and the vitality of the humanities.
