Mercury III project

Sista Suffragist!

In Development

A working group organized and led by Kisha Jarrett and B. Frayn Masters. This multi-year multi-media project centers on four Oregonian black women who were instrumental in getting women the right to vote and particularly fought for women of color to have the right to vote. Sista Suffragist! will feature filmed re-enactments, dance, storytelling, and an interactive mural component. We will also build an education curriculum so this history can be taught in schools alongside the video piece (or future in-school performances when possible). This group will brainstorm these ideas and potentially more. This project is currently a collaboration with the Oregon Bar Association, the Oregon Historical Society, Literary Arts and Artists Repertory Theatre.
