Museum of the American Revolution Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow for Women's History Marcela Micucci

Primary sources are key to our understanding of historical events. Join co-curator of our When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807 special exhibit, Dr. Marcela Micucci, as we explore six key documents that tell the story of an exceptional moment in history when women – and people of African descent – were able to vote in New Jersey, long before the passage of the 15th and 19th Amendments. Participants will use the Museum's virtual exhibit to analyze these primary sources and their historical contexts, walking away with ideas for how to integrate them into classroom learning.

Bank of America and Comcast NBC Universal are presenting sponsors of When Women Lost the Vote, with additional support provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.
