Community Forum: The Untold Story of Women of Color in the League of Women Voters
The League of Women Voters acknowledges that the suffrage movement did not include all women, excluding women—and men--of color. Today the League fights for the opportunity of everyone to make their voices heard and their votes count. The League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the national League by looking back—and ahead. The speaker for Forum—Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins-- will help lead the way forward. She was the first black women to be President of the League of Women Voters of the United States and author of the book with the title of the Forum.
