Hear My Voice - Celebrate the Centennial of Suffrage 
Performed by Rachel McClinton. Written by Rachel Atkins 

This dramatic and inspiring presentation by Rachel McClinton of Living Voices combines a dynamic solo performance with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey.  The central character is Jessie, the daughter of a Political columnist from Tennessee, growing up in Washington, DC, during the early 1900s with dreams of being as important to her father as her younger brother. As tragedy strikes both at home and abroad and the battle for the vote continues to escalate, everyone in Jessie’s family must face their own decisions about what they believe is right and the actions they are willing to take on this pivotal issue. This play engages school age children through adults, and it will appeal to history buffs as well as those who know very little about the suffrage movement.
