Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: Famous Suffragists and Hidden Figures
October 24, 2020
2 pm (MTS)
Live via Zoom
The campaign for woman suffrage in New Mexico is rich and deep. The struggle took 46 years, from 1874 to 1920. As with other aspects of women’s lives, most of the stories—political, economic, social—are not found in history books. They are still being unearthed in family lore, memoirs, songs, newspapers, and a few scholarly works. Join us to learn about the famous protagonists in this story, such as Adelina Otero Warren and Octaviano A. Larrazolo, as well as the less well-known, Ada McPherson Morley, Isabella Selmes Ferguson, Cora Armstrong Kellam and Margaret Green Cartwright.
