- Responding to the near-exclusive representation of white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant women as identifiable figures in the Women's Suffrage Movement, I sought to discover why Suffrage-song lyricists from other backgrounds were not well known. This document presents research on a study to (re-)discover non-white and/or non-Protestant song lyricists during the Women's Suffrage Movement. Conducted in the months leading up to the Women's Suffrage Centennial in 2020, the research yielded a program of songs that were performed at the gravesite of Susan B. Anthony in Rochester, NY. The research was funded by HumanitiesNY and commissioned by The Rochester Oratorio Society. The full extent of my findings includes research suggestions to identify additional non-white and/or non-Protestant lyricists in the future.
- The document represents research as of November 2020. Updated research will replace this document as it happens.
