Votes for Women!

03/06/2014 - Votes For Women was the slogan on the banners that many American Suffragists wore in their 72-year struggle to get the vote.  Although American men had been voting since the 1700's, it wasn't until 1920 that American women were allowed to vote for President.  Award winning Producer Sandra Sleight-Brennan's documentary uses song, interviews, re-creations of events, and comments from historians to bring this dramatic history to life.

03/03/2014 - Emma Lazarus in her poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty wrote: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Bedros, my father might have seen those words in 1914 when he landed at Ellis Island and Araxie, my mother too, seven years later when she arrived.
