Half the population got left out of history.
It’s time we did something about it. At the core of Chick History is the belief that every great story has not been told, and more importantly, what we’ve been told isn’t the whole picture. Women’s history is all around us, we just have to dig it out and put it back in place…one story at a time.
With Tennessee history always as the backdrop, we will build a grassroots campaign that celebrates and commemorates all women’s history.
Countless historical women’s stories have been pushed to the side, buried, or hidden across Tennessee. Their stories must be rescued. Read the full press release.
WE HAVE FOUR PHASES:
- Empowering history professionals. (Completed! Read the Final Report.)
- Protecting the legacy. (Work began November 2016)
- Sharing the women’s history all around us.
- Inspiring the next generation.
How do you document the political activity of African-American women in history?
This is the driving question behind the work of Phase II of March to the 19th. A state-wide task force comprised of subject and technical-matter experts is developing a methodology to answer this question and collect material across the state. (Here is a sample of just one of the conversations the Task Force is having.). A date range has not been finalized, but we are considering the time period between 1880-1930. We are asking the public for any comments, ideas, and leads that may help inform the work of the Task Force.
