  • Grant Summary:

    Greenwich Historical Society will present an exhibition in 2020 in conjunction with the national centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment that will take a new look at its history and legacy using original sources and voices from Greenwich. The exhibition will be enhanced by educational and interpretive programming to address broader social and civic issues that resonate today and that prompt individual and collective responses to topics such as voter registration, voter suppression and the Equal Rights Amendment. This planning grant will be used to support a Guest Curator, two humanities scholars, a marketing/PR professional and an exhibition design firm to supplement GHS’s staff to research and create a compelling Exhibition Implementation Plan, Education Plan and Marketing/PR Plan to expand and engage broad audiences with the history, values and beliefs that inspired and continue to inspire sweeping social movements like the ERA, Black Lives Matter and Me Too.
