How Did African-American Women Define Their Citizenship
at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893?


      This project draws together documents from African American women at the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and interprets their diverse expressions of women's citizenship. By demanding increased participation in the selection of exhibits at the fair and by exposing contemporary social conditions for African Americans they contributed to an expanded definition of Black American women's citizenship.
