> DESCRIPTION

Museum audiences are asked to remember and be part of the inaugural event for the monument by participating in a communal sing-along and live recording of a historic Suffragist-era song, which has never before been recorded. Suffragists wrote the song while in prison; it tells the story of their experience and marks this historic turning point in the nearly century-long struggle to secure women's right to vote, which directly led to the 19th amendment guaranteeing that right. This ‘seed recording’ at the Riverside Art Museum will be used to launch a website, education program, and other future events such as a global, digital quilt of suffragist history and people’s contribution. A broad and all-encompassing cross-section of the community is essential in creating this momentous event.
