Black women have been at the forefront fighting for Women's Rights and the Rights for all. Black Women's voices and experiences have influenced the Violence Against Women Act, The Civil Rights Movement, and the fight for justice against Sexual Assault. Black women have put their bodies on the line. They ARE #MeToo. It's time to listen to their stories, their truths. Our truth. #inthistogether ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #AFaceToIt #aintiawoman #RecyTaylor #RosaParks #IdaBWells #SojournerTruth #taranaburke #Oprah # #vote #blackwomen #empoweringwomen #empowerment #positivity #MeToo #endrapeculture #endracism #stopnegativestereotypes #womenofcolor #WomensRights

#idabwells Ida B. Wells. Journalist, civil rights pioneer. Intense mind and drive for the truth. Born into slavery and freed by the emancipation proclamation. Fought to change the world with every moment of her life.

Teaching children the importance of voting through family history and famous black suffragettes. That's how the morning started here in the Abiodun house. My daughter kicked things off by turning to page 16 in her book, "Little Leaders Bold Women in Black History" by @vashtiharrison. Here she found a short biography of Ida B. Wells and read it aloud to her brother and me over breakfast. I explained that Ida is one of many famous black suffragettes and what a suffragette did during that time. Although there are no famous suffragettes in our family history as far as I know, voting and being registered voters was/is definitely of importance. After closing the pages of her children's book I popped on over to @ancestry to show her a 1954 California Voter Registration record for my grandparents. My daughter hears a lot about these two from her granny - my mother, so I figured they'd be a good focal point for this exercise. What does this record tell us in particular? Well... the household certainly did not see eye to eye on politics. My grandmother was registered was a Republican at the time and my grandfather was a Democrat. Can you spot the household divided on Fielding Street? Time ran short for breaking down the party system this morning, but we did have an opportunity to snap a photo of her with the suffragette sash I recently purchased for her and myself through the Puc Peggy Chapter, NSDAR. (Many thanks to Regent Sallie Kautz for sending this my way.) With all that said, what have you learned about your family's political past in regards to voting? How does your family's voting history impact your present day thoughts on the process, if any? Whether the struggles, contributions or lack thereof of your ancestor's voting record interest you I hope you'll all rock the vote this year for yourself, your community and for posterity. And I'm off my soapbox now...

“I like excavating the things right beneath the surface of the city where I live... Everybody has a history, every institution has a history, every neighborhood, every rock, tree and car. But society is very selective about which of these histories we choose to talk about.” — Dr. Eve Ewing, from @nytimes interview published just yesterday. Come by the Co-op and pick up a copy of “Ghosts in the Schoolyard,” Eve Ewing’s most recent contribution (among many, ongoing) to the South Side community (and public education discourse at large). And join us for “Overlooked: Ida B. Wells” with Ewing, Nicole Hannah-Jones, Michelle Duster, and Natalie Moore on Nov. 2nd @chihumanities ! #eveewing #ghostsintheschoolyard #seminarycoop #southsidechicago #overlooked #idabwells

Progressivism is a label for a wide range of political, social, and economic reforms. The suffrage movement was part of the wave of the Progressive Era reforms. It also sought to eliminate corruption in government, improve working conditions and the lives of others in general, and increase government intervention to protect citizens. Prominent suffragists were prominent progressive reforms too. Ida B. Wells-Barnett launched a nation-wide anti-lynching campaign after the murder of 3 African American men in Memphis. Jane Addams also established the Hull House, a settlement house project in Chicago. People often argued that if a woman had a role in politics it would disengage them from their traditional roles as mothers, caregivers, and wives. Progressives, however, thought that a woman’s role in society complemented those qualities. Ida B. Wells says, "I came home every Friday afternoon, riding the six miles on the back of a big mule. I spent Saturday and Sunday washing and ironing and cooking for the children and went back to my country school on Sunday afternoon.” She did it all. Earlier generations discouraged women from participating in political movements, but in the Progressive Era society began to embrace female activism. credits//Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights by Ellen Carol DuBois #womensuffrage #womensrights #idabwells #janeaddams #progressiveera #progressivism
