Introducing: "Unfinished Work," a new virtual event series investigating the ongoing battle for women's rights in America. We'll explore the road to the 19th Amendment and the women who made it happen - including women of color whose work toward winning truly equal voting rights for all has been less celebrated. Watch as we take a closer look at the legacy and impact of the 19th Amendment on the present-day fight for equality. Featuring Valerie Jarrett, board chair, When We All Vote, co-chair, The United State of Women. Special guests Martha S. Jones, Society of Black Alumni presidential professor and professor of history at the Johns Hopkins University; Kate Clarke Lemay, historian at the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute; and Susan Ware, honorary women's suffrage centennial historian at Radcliffe's Schlesinger Library, Harvard University. Hosted by Jennifer Schuessler, culture reporter at The Times. Special thanks to Mass Mutual for sponsoring this virtual event.
