Susan B. Anthony Alive: A One Woman’s Show
Taylor Theater Performance

March 21, 2020, 7:30PM

Susan B. Anthony had a 50+ years’ commitment to causes that included the abolition of slavery, women’s rights to their own property and earnings, and women’s right to vote, demonstrating a will unbroken by circumstance or obstacle. When the suffragist movement was threatened by an ideological split, it was Ms. Anthony who engineered the reunion of the two factions. Ms. Anthony did not live to see women’s suffrage, but she knew not to give in, not to give up. Her story will be told by historical actress Christina Rausa.

Admission ranges from $10-20. Click here for tickets. Space is limited.
