This year celebrates the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment, which gave black men and other disenfranchised Americans the right to vote, and the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote.

In celebration of those anniversaries, and looking toward the 2020 presidential election, the University of Alabama’s Black History Month celebration is themed “African Americans and The Vote.”

Dr. Hilary Green, UA associate professor of history in the department of gender and race studies, who serves as co-coordinator of the celebration, said the theme is borrowed from the national Carter G. Woodson organization ASALH.
