About the Event

This was a video recording of Laura Free's talk held at the Granger Homestead in Canandaigua, NY on September 12, 2020.  Free is Associate Professor and Chair, Department of History, Hobart & William Smith Colleges, and author of "Suffrage Reconstructed: Gender, Race and Voting Rights in the Civil War Era."

In this presentation, Free told of a time when whiteness and male were synonymous with citizenship. She described how that time and the introduction of the word "male" to the Constitution in the 14th Amendment, led Stanton and Susan B. Anthony to make a tactical shift in their crusade for suffrage, with divisive, long-lasting effects.

A small Quaker community built a simple meetinghouse in rural western New York - and from that vantage point witnessed (and often led) reform movements that changed democracy in nineteenth century America.
