The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Join Dr. Carole Bucy, Davidson County Historian and Volunteer State College professor, for a discussion on what changed in Tennessee, and what did not, as a result of ratification. Her talk will cover some of the lesser-known events of the summer of 1920, as well as some of the lesser-known women and men who were active in the fight for the vote. She will also talk about the expectations that were fulfilled, and those that were not. Bucy regularly conducts teacher workshops on the incorporation of local history into existing U.S. history courses and speaks to school groups about Nashville history. She was an advisor Museum’s Ratified! exhibition and on the Votes for Women room at the downtown Nashville Public Library.
Guests will be able to ask questions during the discussion that will be answered towards the end of the talk, should time allow. Bring your lunch and join us on August 19 at noon Central Time! (1 p.m. EST)
