On June 4, 1919, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by Congress, then ratified on Aug. 18, 1920. The amendment, which prohibits states and the federal government from denying the right to vote on the basis of sex, will be the focus of Warren’s lecture. Warren, an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Kansas, is a scholar of gender and race in African-American and Native American studies, history of education and U.S. history. She authored a book on African-American and Native American citizenship and served as an editor of a book on the transformation of the University of Kansas between 1965 and 2015. Her other publications include examinations of Native American masculinity and athletics, separate gender spheres ideology and African-American tourism in West Africa. Warren’s second monograph, an investigation of Mary McLeod Bethune’s political strategies to advance the movements of women and African-Americans in the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, was supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
