Clarence Mitchell Library Presents

Spring 2020 Programs

Black History Month: “Some of Us Are Brave: Misogynoir and the fight for suffrage.”


Presenter: Brittany Hutchinson
Date: Thursday, February 13, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Clarence Mitchell Library


Brittany Hutchinson is an Assistant Curator at the Chicago History Museum. She specializes in telling Chicago’s diverse stories through the interpretation of Material Culture and Cultural History. Hutchinson develops exhibition content, conducts research, seeks new acquisitions, and speaks on a variety of Chicago history topics.


Hutchinson’s talk will examine the ways in which Black women were systematically occluded from the historical record of the Suffrage movement and the compounding effects if misogynoir on how women’s history is recorded and recounted. By centering Black women and their impact on women’s rights, this talk also seeks to approach the subject of woman’s suffrage through the lens of Third World Feminism.
