The Right to Vote

Lifting as We Climb: Black Women's Battle for the Ballot Box by Evette Dionne

The 2020 Presidential Election is almost here, and 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. The road to women's suffrage was long and challenging and many suffragists worked tirelessly for this right. 

Lifting as We Climb: Black Women's Battle for the Ballot Box by Evette Dionne is the story of the Black women who fought for the right to vote throughout the suffrage movement continuing to present day. This book is on the 2020 Longlist for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
