In our latest Revolutionary Virtual Storytime, the Museum's own Rebecca Franco, Family Programs Manager, reads aloud Equality's Call: The Story of Voting Rights in America, written by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Magdalena Mora, with permission from Beach Lane Books/Simon and Schuster.

Simon and Schuster writes: 
"The founders of the United States declared that consent of the governed was a key part of their plan for the new nation. But for many years, only white men of means were allowed to vote. This unflinching and inspiring history of voting rights looks back at the activists who answered equality’s call, working tirelessly to secure the right for all to vote, and it also looks forward to the future and the work that still needs to be done."

Equality's Call: The Story of Voting Rights in America, written by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Magdalena Mora, is available to purchase online through Simon and Schuster.

This Virtual Storytime was originally featured as part of Virtual Spring Break with the Museum, sponsored by PECO, which ran online in April 2020, featuring do-at-home crafts and activities, virtual story time, Artisans Field Trip living history interviews, and live Q&As with Museum staff.
