WBOI Presents: 1919

1919 comes from a partnership with the Purdue Fort Wayne Department of History.

This week’s program comes from a partnership with the Purdue University Fort Wayne Department of History.

The 19th Amendment was ratified 99 years ago this week. We’ll go back one hundred years, and dive deeper into the women’s suffrage movement that led to the 19th Amendment’s passing, plus the Treaty of Versailles, the League of Nations, the rise of prohibition and more.

Special thanks to Ann Livschiz, Jeff Malanson and Chris Erickson from the Purdue Fort Wayne Department of History for joining us. Our music is by Mark Waldick and Noah Campodonico. Our web producer is Loyal Vandenburg. 

This past week, WBOI Presents was honored with the Cardinal Community Service Award from the Indiana Broadcasters Association. Thank you for your support of this program and thank you to our community partners who made this possible.
