In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the women’s right to vote, you are cordially invited to the Stillwater Tea House for tea, light fare, and conversation with the great suffragist Susan B. Anthony (Lee Ann Rose) and abolitionist Fredrick Douglass (Nathan M. Richardson).

Anthony and Douglass joined forces during the 18th century to fight for the causes of women’s suffrage and abolition of slavery. Their friendship was defined by frequent conversations about women’s rights over tea. Although their efforts to achieve universal voting rights for all men and women did not happen in their lifetime, the 15th Amendment (1870) gave black men the right to vote and set the foundation for the 19th Amendment in 1920.
