Title

The Negro Vote in the South. A Southern Woman's Viewpoint [suffrage flyer]

Description

NWSA flyer containing an essay by Mrs. Guilford Dudley of Nashville, TN. Mrs. Dudley addresses the fear among white Southern Congressmen that if all women are given the vote through a Federal Suffrage Amendment, the increase in black voting power will be detrimental to the nation. Dudley notes the success of "educational tests" that limit black voter registration.
