I had the most amazing opportunity this week to attend the the Organization of American Historians annual conference in Philadelphia, PA. I went to the conference with the chair of the Kutztown University History Department, Andrew Arnold, and really learned a lot. I heard the names of important women in history some I knew like Sarah and Angelina Grimke. I also learned about amazing women such as the Lumpkin sisters. I learned about women who worked for their rights while they were incarcerated, the history of women in Politics like Patsy Mink and Nancy Pelosi. There were great historians that I met with and I will work on a second post to provide more detail about my experience. It was incredible and inspiring.
