On February 16 we will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Susan B. Anthony's birth right here in Adams! Join us for a reenactment of the presentation of yellow roses by local children Anthony's 80th birthday celebration in 1900, presented via video submissions from children in the museum community; Unveiling of the museum's new "Organize, Agitate, Educate" Scholarship for college-bound Berkshire County High Schoolers and recognition of the 2020 recipient; Recognition of Anthony Family Descendants; Musical performance by Eric and Pat Anthony; and, of course, celebratory cake. We will honor the sesquicentennial of the Fifteenth Amendment to the US Constitution giving the right to vote to enslaved persons and recognize women of color and working-class women whose work and words were often overshadowed by privileged white suffragists who controlled the narrative. This will be the Kick-off event for our year-long programming series entitled "In Her Shoes: Understanding Women's Lives Before the 19th Amendment."
