Conversations With A Suffragist

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the U.S. In this one-woman show, Bellarmine University Theatre Program Director Megan Burnett brings to life Mattie Griffith Browne, a Kentucky abolitionist and suffragist whose name has largely been forgotten.

Born in Owensboro, Browne grew up determined to free the enslaved people she inherited from her parents, which she did with funds she raised from writing “Autobiography of a Female Slave.” She sought to bring the plight of the enslaved into public view, and petitioned politicians to end slavery, working closely with Harriet Beecher Stowe. After emancipation, she turned her activism toward suffragism and worked to obtain the right to vote for all citizens, working with Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and other suffragists. Professor Burnett gives her audience an inside look into the life of this world-changing historical figure.
