NYC(P) Sunday Morning Private Walking Tour of Brooklyn Heights with Lucie Levine (May 19, 11AM ET)

Sunday, May 19, 2024, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET


Join us on Sunday morning for Brownstones & Ballot Boxes - Women's Suffrage in Brooklyn Heights - a Private Walking Tour led by Lucie Levine, TTNers’ favorite tour guide.

Brooklyn Heights was home to some of the nation’s earliest suffrage organizations, including those founded by Black women. The suffragists of Brooklyn Heights, known as the "wise women of Brooklyn” were doctors, lawyers, educators and orators whose vision and fortitude changed the course of history.


On this tour, we’ll explore suffrage history at what was once “the center of Black Brooklyn,” find out why the Brooklyn Bridge is a feminist icon, and see how the original location of the Brooklyn Academy of Music set the stage for the Women’s Movement.

After our tour you can stay for (pay-your-own) brunch with fellow TTNers.
