June 1 – Community Meeting in Memphis, Tennessee

Protecting the Legacy is a project that seeks help from the public to uncover local stories about Tennessee African American women. We are digitizing family and local history related to African American women’s political history in Tennessee before 1930.

This is an effort to expand the narrative of suffrage, voting, and political activity; and to preserve the contributions and experiences of African American women during this time period.

We are looking for family and community history about: suffrage, voting, political activity, Club and Church women, community work, nurses, teachers, and racial uplift.

Please join us on June 1, 2018 to learn more.

There will be a presentation by Dr. Earnestine Jenkins of the University of Memphis. The presentation includes how to begin looking through your family and community memorabilia for this type of history (photographs, letters, scrapbooks, etc.)
