Join our mailing list and you’ll receive social media shareables on suffragists’ birthdays and on the anniversaries of important events in the suffrage movement. You’ll also be the first to know when new Ask a Suffragist books are available!
In addition to being a suffragist and abolitionist, Mary Ann Shadd Cary was both the first black American woman to publish and edit a newspaper and the first to attend law school. Mary Ann Shadd Cary: The Black Press and Protest in the Nineteenth Century by Jane Rhodes is simply the best biography out there about this unique woman.
***We think everyone should read the Ask a Suffragist book series, but the first book in the series, America’s First Feminists, will not be available in bookstores until Spring 2019. In the meantime, we’re sharing recommendations of our other favorite memoirs, biographies, history books and fiction by or about suffragists to get you in the mood for the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment. Happy reading!
