One hundred years ago Congress passed the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was one of the most, if not the most, influential crusader and political activist in the fight for women’s suffrage. “The Trials of Susan B. Anthony” is a staged reading about her life and times. In addition to Susan B. Anthony, we will also meet abolitionist Frederick Douglass and Judge Ward Hunt who sentenced her for illegal voting.
With the death of supreme court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the political and social unrest in this election year, a retelling of her story seems particularly timely and relevant.
