Sins of Omission: The Rollin Sisters and the SC Suffrage Movement

August 10, 2020 | 2:00 pm–3:00 pm | Online

Most accounts of the Suffrage Movement in South Carolina begin with the 1890s, with little or no mention of the movement during Reconstruction. Omission of the first struggle denies a rich and complex narrative with the inclusion of women of color and their efforts to obtain the vote. As the nation marks 100 years since the 19th Amendment was ratified, Valinda Littlefield will share the history of Frances, Katherine, Charlotte, Louise and Florence Rollin and the roles they played in starting the fight for women's suffrage.
