Suffrage centennial kickoff celebration

We kicked off a year of commemorations celebrating 100 years since the 19th Amendment was adopted in 1920, enabling women to vote.

The kickoff event featured a live performance by Boston Children’s Chorus, and an original performance art piece by History At Play. We invited all to join in celebrating, with many dressing in all-white, wearing sashes, and donning suffrage colors purple and gold.

The event was free and open to the public.

5:00pm - 7:00pm
4 S Market Street
Boston, MA 02109
FREE; RSVP encouraged
