Suffragettes influenced four generations in my family, says Marguerite Kearns!

WE’RE PASSING THE TORCH IN JULY

Passing the torch is the theme of the free zoom reading on July 28, 2021 at 6 p.m. Mountain Time. Passing the torch of freedom was important in the past. Let’s keep the torch moving into the present and the future. Visit the bkwrks.com/event to sign up for the free July 26th reading by Marguerite Kearns.

I didn’t elaborate much about my own activism in my book published this year by SUNY Press (State University of New York). I figured that the book itself stood as an example of a long-term example of passing the torch.

THE TORCH OF EQUALITY HAS BEEN PASSED BY PREVIOUS GENERATIONS, AND IT’S LIKELY IT WILL BE PASSED AGAIN

In addition, I didn’t feature the more than ten years blogging about my grandmother’s suffrage campaign wagon. It will hopefully be placed on permanent exhibition at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY after the museum’s renovation is complete. Check out: SuffrageWagon.org

And here’s a posting about a few of the accomplishments of 2020. And a video that shows the persistence and inspiration of those who have come before us.

The effort to bring to the attention of the nation the early women’s rights movement included an application for a historic marker in Long Beach, New York for Edna Kearns and much more. The historic marker was unveiled in Long Beach, New York in early June on the boardwalk.

We’re into 2021 when the book about my grandparents and the early women’s rights movement is out there and available. The book is perfect for history instruction. Join the fun and action.
