Professor Bill Green explored the life of Nellie Francis, an African American suffragist from Minnesota who fought for the rights of many marginalized communities. She worked tirelessly, not only to pass the 19th amendment, but to shed light on “the race problem,” establish anti-lynching laws, and protect workers’ rights. Her story runs deep. She stood for so much and faced so many challenges that we can learn a great deal from her life and work even 100 years after she helped win women the right to vote. For her — and for all of us — that was only the beginning of a battle for equity that continues to this day.
