History Sandwiched In: Belle Case La Follette and Progressive Reform
The New York Times hailed Belle Case La Follette as "perhaps the least known, yet the most influential of all the American women who have had to do with public affairs in this country." Among her many accomplishments, this shy Wisconsinite fought against President Woodrow Wilson's efforts to racially segregate Washington, DC — and won. Come join in an illustrated conversation with Santa Clara University History Professor, and La Follette biographer, Nancy C. Unger to learn about one "powerless" woman's ability to make a difference.
