Women's History in Suffield

Suffield Senior Center

The Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame organization teaches us that "women's lives have been filled with rich experiences, and their daily contributions are an invaluable part of our history that has too often been overlooked." Bill Sullivan's American Studies class will investigate the history of Suffield with a focus on women's history and social movements. Exploring their impact on our community and region by examining letters, photographs, and other primary sources, the students will share what they learned as well as the historical methods they utilized. Please join us for this multimedia presentation and learn more about women's history in Suffield. If the students make any original discoveries, they will be encouraged to make a case to induct a candidate into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame and will explain their case for induction.

Date: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 7:00 p.m.
