Join the Arne Nixon Center and the League of Women Voters of Fresno for a conversation with author and editor of Bitch Media, Evette Dionne, on Oct. 20, 2021 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. PT. Dionne will talk about her book Lifting as We Climb: Black Woman’s Battle for the Ballot Box and Black women’s roles in today’s politics. The talk will be followed by a moderated Q and A.  

With the help of Dionne, we hope to shed light on how Black women were involved in the Women’s Suffrage Movement and their influence in politics. Dionne will also touch on the role of Black Women in politics today.
