Suffrage Centennial Honored in Rose Parade Float

Updated: Mar 22

Keep an eye out for the suffrage centennial Rose Parade "Years of Hope, Years of Courage" float on New Years Day as you watch the game! Descendants of Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony and Ida B Wells will ride the float in honor of their ancestors who led the national suffrage movement.


Congratulations to our friends at Pasadena Celebrates 2020 and Nan Johnson for their incredible work on this!
