A Black Suffragist in the Jim Crow South

“Join host Tonya Scott-Williams and project poet (and Alabama Poet Laureate) Ashley M. Jones for an interview with Dr. Tara White, history instructor at Wallace State Community College Selma, about the role of women’s clubs in the women’s suffrage movement. We also explore the life of the Black suffragist, Adella Hunt Logan. Logan was born into a slaveholding family that included Black, white, and Cherokee ancestry. As she grew older, she used her heritage to her advantage. While Logan became a teacher at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University), she also passed for white to join the segregated women’s suffrage movement.
