Susan B. Anthony was a great civil rights activist. She was one of the founders of the National Woman’s Suffrage Association. An organization fighting for the rights of women to vote and hold office. When looking through some of the primary documents, I was pleased to find the letter attached to this post. Susan was well educated, as many of the men in that time period, but believed that blacks were humans and were just like whites.
Susan B. Anthony with the help of Elizabeth Cady Stanton stood up for women and lead a campaign that she did not live to see, but 14 years after her death, the 19th Amendment was passed giving women the rights to vote!
