The Fight for the Noblest Democracy: Women’s Suffrage in Alabama

Come and enjoy an evening of food, drinks, and fun while watching “The Fight for the Noblest Democracy: Women’s Suffrage in Alabama” from the lawn of Vulcan Park and Museum. This film created and produced by Jenna Bedsole documents the story of suffrage in Alabama, as part of the greater overall suffrage movement leading to the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920.

There will be three showtimes on Friday, October 9 to ensure social distancing while viewing the thirty-minute documentary: 6:30PM, 7:30PM, and 8:30PM.

After viewing the film, guests can explore “Right or Privilege: Alabama Women and the Vote” exhibit inside the Linn-Henley Gallery or purchase keepsakes at The Anvil, located at Vulcan Center. There will be food trucks, soda, beer, and wine available for additional purchase.

All guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Seating is first-come, first-serve.

A huge thank-you to our sponsors Balch & Bingham, LLP and Lightfoot for making this event possible.
