Honoring the 19th Amendment through Word and Song

In this Farmers Night program commemorating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Marlboro College professor Meg Mott leads a dialogue on the history and meaning of the 19th Amendment. Meg was accompanied by Wesleyan University scholar and composer Neely Bruce conducting the State House Singers in his original choral arrangement of the Bill of Rights, along with the premiere of his 19th Amendment composition.

This video was recorded at the Vermont State House in Montpelier on February 5, 2020.
