Re-enactor Sheryl Faye as Susan B. Anthony

SUSAN B. ANTHONY
Re-Enactor, Sheryl Faye
This is going to be the best party ever. One of the most famous women in American history is celebrating her 200th birthday this year—and you’re invited. Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts. The famous social reformer and activist devoted her life to racial, gender and educational equality and played a prominent role in the women’s suffrage movement. We can only imagine the stories she’ll tell: perhaps she’ll share memories of her lifelong friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the time she was arrested for voting in her hometown of Rochester, New York, and convicted in a widely publicized trial, or the day she celebrated her 80th birthday in the White House at the invitation of President William McKinley. Meet this fascinating pioneer in person and find out why the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote became known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.
