Chautauqua 2020: Raising Their Voices

Chautauqua (pronounced  Shuh-TAW-Kwa) is a history performance series hosted by Maryland Humanities. The theme this year is Suffrage, and the events focus on four women: Margaret Brent, Alice Paul, Mary Church Terrell, and Fanny Lou Hamer. 
 
This summer, the Chautauqua stage goes virtual as Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. We highlight the unique story of each of these historic figures as they fought for their rights. This year’s series starts in the 1600s and continues through the modern era.
 
In July, there will be four performances with a live Q&A, which will give attendees the chance to engage with the performers and ask questions about each of these remarkable women.
