This year we celebrated the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. And while this was a great accomplishment for the movement and gave so many more Americans the right to vote, we also know that the constitutional amendment only applied to white women, leaving out countless other groups including Black women, Indigenous people and other marginalized groups.

Brandi Burns is the history programs manager at the City of Boise and is joining Idaho Matters live to talk about her recent “Notes” series of research on those left out of the suffrage movement.
