In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, a new program is being produced for airing on public broadcasting stations in the summer of 2020.
The show will record the suffrage song portion of the Right to Vote concert being performed by Women in Harmony, a women’s choir in Portland, Maine, which has a long history of presenting high quality choral music with social justice themes. The show will feature video segments with the songs, which tell the story of the women’s suffrage movement, and will be compelling illustrated visually with archival material from the Library of Congress, the National Archives, and other sources. With both serious and light hearted segments, the emotion of the movement will be evoked. Some video segments will be narrated by special guests.
