We’ve Come a Long Way Ladies: A Centennial Celebration of Suffrage Through Song

Music—especially songs—played a critical role in the American suffrage movement, serving as inspiration, social commentary, and sometimes even provocation. As we reflect on the brave women—and men—who fought for the right of women to vote (codified in 1920 by the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution), their music shines a light upon their struggle and provides a window into their day-to-day lives. This program featuring guest artist Audrey Johnson (mezzo-soprano) alongside Lexington’s own Barbara Rogers (piano) is designed to highlight these historical figures while also emphasizing the importance of civic engagement in our own time. Presented in partnership with Of Thee I Sing and the UK Department of History.
