This multi-media suffrage news channel is and has been a labor of love. It is volunteer staffed, and motivated by the awareness that if the grandchildren of grassroots organizers and activists didn’t step up to the plate, few. others would.
Hundreds of videos like this one were created with a limited budget and lots of love. The intent was educational and led to a misguided perception that activists like Edna Kearns were pushed to the front of the line because of their position in society and other imagined reasons. The video project has been volunteer led and flows from a reservoir of family and ancestor love. Check out many of the videos and spread them around: vimeo.com/kearnsmarguerite
