The City of Malden is grateful to the North Shore Juneteenth Association for sharing an art exhibit to be viewed by the public on Black Women Suffragists to commemorate Black History month. The exhibit which is currently being displayed in the lobby of City Hall aims to give the Black Women Suffragists both the recognition and the appreciation they deserve.
During the 19th and 20th centuries, Black women played an active role in the struggle for universal suffrage, participating in political meetings and conventions where they strategized on obtaining the right to vote. Through their fierce fight for both women and human rights, these heroes along with many others displayed incredible amounts of fortitude, resilience and courage and played an important role in getting both the Fifteenth and Nineteenth Amendments passed.
Please take a moment to visit Malden City Hall and view the exhibit during regular City Hall hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 8 AM-5 PM; Tuesday 8 AM-7 PM) until March 7th.
