As the story of the Long Island suffrage movement comes into its own, the history of grassroots organizing on the island isn't complete without telling of Rosalie Jones, Elisabeth Freeman, and Edna Buckman Kearns. This video is illustrated by images of Rosalie Jones from the Library of Congress and music by Kerry Ann Hamilton. It augments news and stories of the suffrage movement as presented on Suffrage Wagon News Channel (suffragewagon.org). There's also a book about the Long Island suffrage movement by Antonia Petrash which for the first time brings the Long Island grassroots organizing for equality to a large audience. Music by Kerry Ann Hamilton. Images: Library of Congress.
