The Power of Black Women Voters

  • Arlington Central Library 1015 North Quincy Street Arlington, VA United States (map)

Recent elections have brought attention to both the value and disregard of the Black women's vote. As we move toward the celebration of the centennial of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote, we take a look at the role of Black women as suffragists, activists, voters, and political leaders. 

Join Gloria Browne-Marshall, JD, MA, Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, along with moderator Krysta Jones, founder and CEO of Vote Lead Impact, Inc., as she discusses the power of Black women voters, and how we can leverage all voters to create better public policy for all. 

This event is co hosted by Vote Lead Impact, Arlington County Libraries, Women's Vote Centennial Initiative, Women Work (WoW) and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Nu Xi Zeta chapter. Co sponsors include Virginia's List and Virginia NOW. RSVP: https://bit.ly/2qReRAE
