Commemorative Calendar for the 19th Amendment

Purple and yellow text on a white background. Text reads 1920 - 2020. 19th Amendment Centennial National Archives.  The dash in the date range is replaced with a stylized lily graphic.The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920, but this landmark event was not the beginning or the end of the story for women and the struggle for the right to vote.

Join us in 2020 as we commemorate this centennial year with 12 stories from our holdings. Each month, we’ll share a new collection of downloadable designs including a calendar page, Facebook cover photo, and an occasional mobile device lock screen. You can save and print these designs, set them as wallpaper, whatever works for you!

Each item will highlight a specific moment in the woman suffrage movement, designed to inspire you throughout 2020. We'll share a note across our social media channels when each new collection is ready. 

Interested in learning more about the women featured each month? Make sure to check out the special blog post that accompanies each release for the stories behind the designs.

Mary Church Terrell was born in 1863 to formerly enslaved parents in Memphis, TN. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Oberlin College. Terrell helped found the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) in 1896, and served as NACW president for five years. Her now-famous words—“Lifting as we climb”—were the motto for the group. Terrell was a tireless champion of suffrage for African American women throughout her life. (National Archives Local Identifier 306-PSE-83-2496)
