The Woman's Era Club: A Story of Black Women's Activism
In 1893, a group of Boston women founded the Woman’s Era Club, one of the first women’s clubs in the country led by African American women. With its journal, The Woman’s Era, this club’s mission of social activism reached national audiences. What causes were these women fighting for, and how did they view their roles as activists in their communities? In this talk, SCA Public History Intern Katie Woods will explore the stories of three women behind this little-known, yet influential club and publication.
