C-Span Classroom: Lesson Plan: Choice Board – Conversations with Suffragists

On August 18, 1920, women won the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. To commemorate this anniversary, the National Archives hosted a conversation with interpreters from American Historical Theatre portraying suffragists. In this lesson, students will hear suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth and Alice Paul talk about their experiences as activists.
