Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum

Posted by cpeltier@susanbanthonybirthplace.org

Please join The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum Board and Staff for a reception introducing the newest addition to our museum experience!

Thanks to a grant from ReDirect Media, an interactive kiosk will be installed this week with the complete and unedited volumes of Susan B Anthony’s newspaper The Revolution.

In addition to digitized issues of The Revolution, the kiosk features biographical information on historical figures who worked on the newspaper, an historic term glossary, and a quiz.

This kiosk is just one of the museum's many upcoming efforts to expand exhibits and programming to discuss, in its proper historical context, controversies from the Women's Suffrage Movement of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Racism and Restellism.

A huge debt of gratitude goes to SBABM Board Member Lynn Lewandowski for 5 months of tireless effort in completing this monumental project.

Those in attendance will also have a chance to enjoy our "Missing Pieces" Garden tour highlighting women of color who have been forgotten or omitted from the Suffrage narrative, and lesser known events within the U.S. Suffrage Movement.

The publication pages are digitized to give visitors the opportunity to engage with primary sources on all of the topics covered in Anthony’s newspaper. These include editorials, articles, and letters to the editor about the suffrage causes showcased in the Susan B Anthony Birthplace Museum wall exhibits: suffrage, abolitionism, and temperance. In addition, the primary resources for the much-discussed Opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion) suffrage position will be available to scholars, researchers, and visitors. Other outspoken social and political statements contained in their entirety are vegetarianism, war, labor, marital property rights, prostitution, poverty, and single motherhood.
