Historian Johanna Neuman discusses her new book, And Yet They Persisted: How American Women Won the Right to Vote, at one of the premier bookstores in Palm Beach, FL.
As the nation commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which cleared constitutional barriers to women voting, she argues that the fight for the vote took far longer than previously credited — stretching from the revolutionary era in the 1770s, when some women agitated for the vote and others actually voted, to the civil rights era in the 1960s, when African American women in the Deep South, technically enfranchised by the 19th Amendment, were kept from the ballot by local Jim Crow laws. In her new book — And Yet They Persisted: How American Women Won the Right to Vote — she tells how women of all races and classes, fought with great persistence over two centuries to win the ballot.
Join us for an evening of provocative thought, with a book signing to follow.

As we commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment, 2020 serves as a great opportunity to look back on the long history and ponder the costs of social change. Come join us at Barnes & Noble in Boynton Beach to learn more about this epic achievement, ask the author questions and get her to autograph your copy of the book. See you there!
