Our 2020 annual exhibit, “Suffrage and Sovereignty: David, Esther, and Zerelda Wallace,” covered a great variety of topics. With visitation down because of COVID restrictions, Museum staff want to share additional resources with our virtual visitors.
As we research our exhibits, we always compile much more information than we can present on the walls of the Lynne D. Hohlbein Education Room. Visitors to the museum can take home a list of further resources related to the various subjects covered in “Suffrage & Sovereignty.” For your convenience, we have created a list here on our blog with the same list. You can also download a PDF of the list.
