Breakfast with O’Keeffe Online: Recasting the Vote
In August, 2020 the building on the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum campus in Santa Fe, commonly referred to at the Research Center, was officially renamed the Otero-Bergere House by the Historic Santa Fe Foundation. Adeline “Nina” Otero-Warren was a longtime resident of the house and one of New Mexico’s most prominent suffragists. Join us for a lecture presented by Cathleen Cahill, Ph. D , author of Recasting the Vote: How Women of Color Transformed the Suffrage Movement, exploring her new book and discussing Nina Otero-Warren’s influence on the suffrage movement.
Dr. Cahill had the privilege to teach at UNM for thirteen years before moving to Penn State University in 2017 where she is now an associate professor of history. She is the author of two books, Federal Fathers and Mothers: A Social History of the United States Indian Service, 1869-1933 and the forthcoming Recasting the Vote.
