How do we honor Black and Latina women? How do we preserve their legacy? 2020 marks the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage, but Black women’s contributions to the movement largely go uncelebrated, and most Black women in America could not vote until 1965. As the city and the nation confront issues of representation and equity in public commemoration, please join FRIENDS of the Upper East Side and Save Harlem Now! for a virtual walk through Harlem. The tour, lead by @harlemwalksnyc, will focus on sites publicly celebrating pioneering Black and Latina women, and issues surrounding the preservation of such sites.
