Nellie Francis, Champion of Women's Equality and Racial Justice

Dr. William Green’s presentation will be on Nellie Francis, an often overlooked local black woman who both participated in leading the campaigns for women's suffrage in 1919 and (in the wake of the lynchings of three black men in Duluth in 1920) drafted and successfully lobbied the bill to make lynching a crime. The presentation is a moving and compelling story not often told of how a Minnesota black woman helped shape the 19th amendment by bringing together white and black women in a united front.

This CLE is approved for credit through October 29, 2022.
