On Saturday, February 22, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will offer two events: a 10 a.m. “Door County Talks” presentation about women’s suffrage and a 7 p.m. Fireside Coffeehouse Concert by close-harmony duo The Brother Brothers.
Door County Talks: “Woman Suffrage 100 Years Later: Assessing Its Triumphs and Limits” with Dr. Kimberley Reilly
UW-Green Bay’s Dr. Kimberley Reilly will deliver this week’s Door County Talks presentation, entitled “Woman Suffrage 100 Years Later: Assessing Its Triumphs and Limits,” at 10 a.m. in DCA’s cozy Fireside Lobby. One hundred years after women won the constitutional right to vote, Reilly will discuss the ways in which the women’s rights movement won passage of the Nineteenth Amendment and the lessons we can learn from that victory. She will also examine the overall history of the suffrage movement, battles that were left unfinished, and the way the legacy of the suffrage movement influences the fight for gender equality today.
Dr. Kimberley Reilly is an Associate Professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. She received her Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago. Her talk will include a post-talk question-and-answer session. Coffee and bakery from Kick Ash Coffee will be available for purchase. Reilly’s lecture is presented in conjunction with The Door County Civility Project and the League of Women Voters, and it is free to the public. Freewill donations are encouraged.
Fireside Coffeehouse Concert: The Brother Brothers
At 7 p.m. on February 22, close-harmony duo The Brother Brothers will take the stage in DCA’s cozy Fireside Lobby. The Brother Brothers are Adam and David Moss, identical twins carrying on the folk tradition for a new generation. Using minimal instrumentation, heartfelt lyricism, and harmonies so natural they seem to blend into one beautiful voice, these siblings drew on the energy and creativity of Brooklyn, New York for their full-length debut album, Some People I Know. The Brother Brothers have opened tours with Sarah Jarosz and Lake Street Dive, as well as Anaïs Mitchell’s stage production of Hadestown.
Tickets for The Brother Brothers’ concert are $22. Seating is limited. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made at the DCA box office, located at 3926 Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 p.m, and can also be reached on the phone at (920) 868-2728 or online at dcauditorium.org.
