Voter Fraud: The Trial of Susan B. Anthony
The recreation of the story of the illegal vote cast by Susan B. Anthony in the presidential election of 1872
Presented by the BAEC History Committee and the WBASNY – WNY Chapter’s Public Sector & Not-for-profit Committee
Hosted and produced by the Second Generation Theatre Company
Directed by Kyle LoConti
Starring Tina Rausa, a 40-year veteran of the Buffalo stage, whose resume features historic characters (Emily Dickson, Golda Meir, Lillian Hellman, Amelia Earhart and Susan B. Anthony.)
Local attorneys will play the remaining parts, and there will be a discussion of the Fourteenth Amendment and other legal issues – including the lack of credit to African American suffragists – brought to mind by this historic Western New York trial. If you’ve been in the Ontario County Courthouse in Canandaigua, then you have been in the same courtroom where the trial took place on June 17-18, 1873. This re-telling will take place in the ballroom of Buffalo’s historic Twentieth Century Club, one of the first private social clubs for women which was founded in 1894. The Club, located at 595 Delaware Ave., is on the National Register of Historic Places (parking at 516 Franklin St.)
There is a 3 p.m. and a 6 p.m. presentation; the 6 p.m. presentation is limited to 150 attendees (21+) and will be followed by a cocktail party (with heavy hors d’oeuvres) with the cast.
Ticket options will include Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit. 1.0 CLE credit available in Areas of Professional Practice provided by the Erie Institute of Law.
The Erie Institute of Law has been certified by the NYS Continuing Legal Education Board as an accredited provider of continuing legal education in the state of New York. Tuition assistance is available for the CLE portion of this program.
