2022-2023 Display Hosts
The following organizations displayed the exhibit.
The Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress marks the 100th anniversary of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 with a new traveling exhibit, 100 Years After the Indian Citizenship Act: The Continuing Struggle to Guarantee Voting Rights to Native Americans. The seven-banner exhibit explores Native American Voting Rights long before the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 as well as how the Act failed to ensure Native American participation in elections. The passage of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 was neither the beginning nor the end of the struggle to gain voting rights for Native Americans. The exhibit spotlights tribal leaders and less known, yet extraordinary voting rights activists from all walks of life. The traveling exhibit builds off the success of its predecessors that reached over 225 venues nationwide: Magna Carta (2015-2018), 19th Amendment (2019-2022), and Mayflower Compact (2022-2023). Our new exhibit is on display nationwide through 2024 at law schools, state capitol buildings, state and local bar associations, courthouses, law firms, and national and local conferences. You are invited to display the traveling exhibit. To reserve the exhibit, please contact Anne P. Brown.

The passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 did not guarantee full voting rights for all women. The long-fought struggle for the right to vote for Indigenous/Native, Black/African, Latina, and Asian American suffragists continued beyond 1920. Today, an ongoing struggle for voting inclusivity continues with a clarion call to take on present-day voter suppression.
