Knowing Our Worth: Black Women Changemakers



Black women have been at the vanguard of social and political change in Minnesota for generations — from abolitionist Emily Grey to anti-lynching activist Nellie Francis, from labor leader Nellie Stone Johnson to civil rights organizer Anna Arnold Hedgeman, and from social reformer W. Gertrude Brown to fair-housing advocate Katie McWatt. Join Dr. Josie Johnson, Angela Conley, and Anika Bowie for a lively, multi-generational conversation, moderated by Professor Duchess Harris, about fighting for rights, running for office, and leading change as Black women in Minnesota. https://www.mnhs.org/votesforwomen
