The National Constitution Center is offering a series of America’s Town Hall programs about constitutional issues in the news. Join us for a musical world premiere and conversation.

In celebration of the opening of the new exhibit, The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote, the National Constitution Center hosts the premiere performance of composer Patrice Michaels’ new work RESOLVED and a Town Hall discussion about the women who fought for equal voting rights.

Join internationally-renowned mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges and pianist Laura Ward for an 18-minute song cycle about the 19th Amendment and the American women’s suffrage movement by composer/soprano/creator Patrice Michaels and produced by NBCUniversal.

A panel discussion featuring historians, including Marcia Chatelain of Georgetown University, Nancy Gertner of Harvard Law School, and Gail Heriot of the University of San Diego School of Law, exploring some of the iconic women highlighted in the performance who fought for the 19th Amendment and the Equal Rights Amendment will follow. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.
