Mary Church Terrell: Performance and Q&A
This month, Maryland Humanities living history series goes virtual as the organization raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. Sherrie Tolliver brings Mary Church Terrell (18631954) to life. Born in Tennessee to two formerly enslaved business owners, Terrell helped to found the National Association for Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the National Association for Colored Womens Clubs (NACWC). She worked with the National Womens Party in picketing at the White House in support of womens suffrage.
