Jesup Library Online Film Screening
September 23 @ 7:00 pm
All are welcome to join filmmaker Barbara Cray for an online screening of “Votes for Women, The History of Women’s Suffrage Through Song” on Thursday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.
The program is being sponsored by the Jesup Memorial Library.
The film captures the suffrage movement’s heroic efforts to achieve the right to vote. In the film, historical accounts of the movement are illustrated with archival photographs and video and are interspersed with rousing songs performed by Portland, Maine-based chorus Women in Harmony. The historical segments of the film are narrated by Nancy Giles, a contributor to “CBS Sunday Morning.” The film project began when Cray created video segments (some narrated by Maine dignitaries) with archival images about the suffrage movement that was featured during a January 2020 concert by Women in Harmony.
