Janiece Robinson presents
A Woman’s Ballot that Changed the World
In Honor of
A Woman's Right to Vote
About the Presentation
Divisive politics of today can cloud the importance and power of an individual’s right to vote. In some ways, nothing has changed. In 1873, Susan B Anthony walked up the stone steps of a federal courthouse and into history. Expecting a verdict affirming a woman’s right to vote, she encountered a shocking legal injustice—the story of which few Americans have ever heard. THE VOTE recounts the events that brought Women’s Suffrage to the forefront of national newspapers and household conversations.
In this 45-minute non-partisan presentation, Janiece Robinson tells the captivating story of Susan B Anthony casting a ballot in the 1872 presidential election and how that action led to her arrest. Janiece invites the audience to examine the events for themselves as they hear newspaper articles, court documents and eyewitness testimony. She also includes eloquent reasoned excerpts from Susan B Anthony’s speeches—all leading to an unexpected climax. This program highlights and honors the hard-fought right to vote—and provides inspiration and courage for everyone who hears it.
