From the Parlor to the Polling Place:
Stories & Songs from the Suffragists
 
From the Parlor to the Polling Place: Stories and Songs from the Suffragists
brought to you by the Friends of the Library
Sunday, May 2nd at 2 pm via Zoom
 
Music was essential to the movement: each state convention of suffragists began and ended with songs such as “Shall Women Vote?” “New America,” “Giving the Ballot to the Mother” or “Voting as we Pray,” as well as rousing Christian hymns. Radtke also traces the movement’s alignment with other social justice initiatives such as temperance, labor conditions, wage equity, peace, and children’s welfare.
Linda Radtke, a classically trained singer, will be performing live with accompanist Cameron Steinmetz from the Charlotte Congregational Church. Linda was a Vermont high school teacher for thirty-one years and now produces the VPR Choral Hour on Vermont Public Radio.

Week 3:Nurturing our spirit as we brighten our inner light through a guided oneness practice.
