When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776 – 1807

2020-21 exhibition

 

Prop Book,  Vindication of the Rights of Woman

Millions of American women were granted the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which marked its centennial in 2020. But more than a century earlier, women and free people of color legally held the vote in New Jersey for more than thirty years.

This exhibit explored the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters and examined the political conflicts that led to their voting rights being stripped away.

Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral,

written by Phillis Wheatley

Reproductions for Docents and Interpreters use. 

Phillis Wheatley, the first published African-American author, was lauded in both Europe and the American colonies as an example of the artistic and intellectual equality of people of African descent. Wheatley was born in Africa but was captured and brought to America as an enslaved child. This original copy of her work, published in 1773, is autographed by Wheatley.
