The Life and Work of Mary Burnett Talbert: Suffragist and Human Rights Advocate
The live program scheduled for 2 p.m. October 10 at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion was changed to a virtual event, to be live-streamed at the same time.
Historian and Associate Professor, Lillian S. Williams, University of Buffalo, spoke on Mary Burnett Talbert, an African-American suffragist, and early 20th Century reformer. Talbert was President of the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs and led the NAACP's anti-lynching campaign.
This was the second of three programs on the theme “Struggle for Women’s Suffrage: Politics and Race” that the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse Museum hosted in 2020.
