TALKS

Suffragists, Home Economists and First Ladies – September 22

Nearly thrown out and lost forever, the Smithsonian’s National Woman Suffrage Association Collection consists of artifacts documenting women’s struggle for the right to vote (1848-1920). Join Visiting Scholar Edith (Edie) Mayo this Thursday as she shares stories about the suffrage collection, and discusses the role of women and reform throughout the nation’s history and on the Chautauqua Movement.

Edie Mayo is curator emeritus in Political History at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History (NMAH), where she worked for over forty years as curator and historian. Ms. Mayo has conceptualized, curated and written script for major exhibitions on political history, voting rights and women’s history including, The Right to Vote (1972), a history of voting rights in America; We’ll Never Turn Back (1980), an exhibit on civil rights; and We the People: Winning the Vote (1987), exploring formal and informal constitutional processes (voting, campaigns, political parties). In 1998, Mayo curated and scripted Rights for Women, a major exhibition on woman suffrage, for the World Financial Center in New York City, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the women’s rights movement.

Dawn and Hawkes – October 7

Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes first met in 2010 when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. A modest beginning became an instant attraction when they first sang together creating a sound Texas Monthly coined as “undeniably intimate.” Their first duo effort, “Golden Heart,” climbed to #25 on Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at #2 in iTunes Singer-Songwriter albums kicking off a whirlwind of constant cross-country touring and co-writing, and even a run on NBC’s “The Voice.” Judge Adam Levine called their version of the Beatles’ “I’ve Just Seen a Face” his “favorite performance on the show – ever” and the single reached No. 1 on Billboard’s rock chart. Listen here. Friday, October 7. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.
