Since the early days of statehood, women in California have been at the forefront of the fight for civil rights.  We will have a look at the lives of Charlotte Brown, who fought the color bar on San Francisco street cars in 1863, Selina Solomons who organized shop girls and laundresses to win women’s suffrage, Alice Piper,  a 15-year-old Paiute who challenged the segregation of Native American children in Big Pine public schools – and other courageous women.  Join us as we find out what motivated these bold women – and the rights they won for us all.

Presentation by Elaine Elinson, local Bernal library patron, and coauthor of Wherever There’s a Fight:  How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California, winner of a Gold Medal in the California Book Awards.
