The HerStory Scrapbook provides internet links to original source material regarding the women’s suffrage campaign. During the month of February, the HerStory 360° Challenge on the HerStory Scrapbook will focus on African-American women who fought for suffrage. Because black women were often marginalized in, or left out entirely from, the history texts written by white suffragists and the mainstream media, we are fortunate that Google Books has recently digitized The Crisis, the magazine of the NAACP, which was first published in 1910. The biographies and autobiographies of many African American women are also available online and the HerStory 360° Challenge will provide links to them.
Please let your network of friends, colleagues, and students of history know about the HerStory 360° Challenge.
