      Tea & Suffrage

      In commemoration of the upcoming 2020 Centennial of the 19th Amendment, enjoy a 60 minute Living Voices program that combines a dynamic solo performance with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey. You will meet Jessie, the daughter of a political columnist from Tennessee, growing up in Washington, DC during the early 1900s with dreams of being as important to her father as her younger brother is. When her Great-Aunt Charlotte, a longtime suffragist, comes to Washington, she introduces Jessie to the movement. In addition, you will meet two surprise guests from the past: One who made an impact not only on Sacramento politics, but on those of the State of California, and one who had a hand in forging the very design of our democracy. After the performance, join us for high tea, no host bar and a silent auction. All proceeds will be used for 19th Amendment Centennial events being planned for the year ahead by the 19th Amendment Centennial Committee of The Renaissance Society.
