Did you know Tennessee was the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote in 1920? Nashville is celebrating the centennial of the landmark ratification and you can, too, when you visit Music City in 2020. Here are five ways to celebrate.
Check out the historic Women’s Suffragist Exhibit at The Hermitage Hotel.
The Hermitage Hotel boasts a private collection of historic artifacts from the summer of 1920, when Suffragists headquartered at the hotel. The display is next to the lobby, open all spring and summer. Through August, you can stop by the hotel’s bar for a Suffragist-themed cocktail.
See the cartoonish side of the 19th Amendment at the Main Library.
While women’s rights are no laughing matter, Nashville’s Main Library hosts a riveting exhibition of political cartoons depicting the larger issues surrounding the 19th Amendment. It’s well worth a stop when you’re in the area.
Step back in time at The Parthenon.
Nashville’s Parthenon hosts a commemorative exhibit premiering this month and on display for the rest of the year, spotlighting the creators of the 1897 Centennial Exposition Women’s Building and educating visitors on the links between American voting rights and Athenian democracy.
Visit a world-class museum.
The Tennessee State Museum is worth a visit while in Nashville for a wide array of reasons, but this year, you can check out the 2020 special exhibition “Ratified! Tennessee Women and the Right to Vote,” to better understand the ratification.
Catch a show.
There are quite a few musical and theatrical performances taking place over 2020 in honor of the centennial. You can find out more about all the commemorative events, including shows, on the Nashville centennial event page.
