Huntsvillain History - Suffrage in Alabama

With the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment fast approaching, Madison County Archivist Shalis Worthy joins Huntsvillain to discuss the fight for suffrage in North Alabama and nationwide. We also grieve some words lost to history like "Enfangle", name some strange biological artifacts from the Madison County Archive and of course deep dive into the lives of those who fought for the rights of women in Alabama.
