Deleasa Randall-Griffiths, associate professor of communication at Ashland University, will present “An Evening with Carrie Chapman Catt, President of the National American Woman Suffrage Association,” at the main branch of the Wayne County Public Library in downtown Wooster. Professor Randall-Griffiths brings the suffrage leader to life in a three-part performance that includes an in-character monologue and Q&A, followed by an out-of-character Q&A with the scholar/performer. The talk is free and open to the public.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving women the right to vote. The Wayne County Historical Society, Wayne County Public Library, and the League of Women Voters of Wayne County have joined forces to celebrate with a series of events and speakers from March through October.
