Race and Rights: Wells, Willard and Addams

April 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Who gets to be a citizen? How did debates in Chicago around voting, lynching and women’s rights break down across racial lines? The panel discussion will focus on the historical breakdowns in feminism and race for Frances Willard and Jane Addams, and tell the story of Ida B. Wells’ efforts to hold them each accountable. At Harris Hall at Northwestern University, 1881 Sheridan Road. Presented by the Frances Willard House Museum and WCTU Archives, in partnership with Jane Addams Hull House Museum and Northwestern University Department of History.
