In celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote the National Archives Foundation has created the online initiative Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote. As a part of this series, the National Archives is offering six virtual sessions throughout the month of August highlighting historical moments from the women’s suffrage movement.

Wells speaks on her life and the impact that African American women had in the fight for women’s rights before and after the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Following the presentation, join A’Lelia Bundles in a special conversation with Ida B. Wells’ great-granddaughter Michelle Duster.
