Votes for Women
August 18, 2020 - 11:30 AM
Come hear the bells ringing at the church at noon. Bring a chair and listen, or join us in walking around the church as the bells ring 100 times.
On the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, join a celebration of inclusion, inspiration, and voice, featuring our special guest Rosanne Cash — singer, songwriter, author, and narrator of the PBS documentary By One Vote: Woman Suffrage in the South. This virtual experience will culminate with neighbors, universities, and other institutions citywide ringing bells, big and small. In 1920, when the Tennessee Legislature cast its tie-breaking vote to ratify the 19th Amendment, cities across the U.S. rang bells in recognition — but Nashville did not. On August 18, we break that silence with the loudest celebration of the summer.
