Carrie Chapman Catt: A Living History Performance of a Woman’s Suffrage Story

 Sunday, July 26, 2020 
1:30pm-3:00pm  
Steele Memorial Bandstand

Women’s suffrage leader Carrie Chapman Catt was President of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) in 1920 when the 19th Amendment became part of the U.S. Constitution.

In this living history performance, Dr. Deleasa Randall-Griffiths brings Catt to life by sharing the story of many who worked tirelessly for the enfranchisement of women.

This three-part performance includes an in-character, “back-in-time” monologue where Catt tells about the part she played in the suffrage movement. The monologue is followed by an in-character question and answer period, where audience members can ask questions of Catt herself.

Finally, there will be an out-of-character question and answer period with the scholar/performer. In that portion, the audience can ask about things that have occurred since Catt was alive. They can also learn more about putting together a living history performance. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be livestreamed below and lakesideohio.com/youtube.
