    Suffrage and Black Americana Group. The Woman's Movement grew out of roots planted by the Abolitionist Movement of the 1840s-50s. At its height, it struggled on how to include the newly freed Black population. The juxtaposition of black women and woman's suffrage is evident in this lot. The 5.75" black woman bisque statue has been called the "Sojourner Truth" statue, whether this is true or not the statue certainly represents the anti-suffrage movement. Included with the statue is the minstrel booklet called "The Colored Suffragettes." In addition to these items is a political cartoon addressing the issue of Female Emigration, measuring 7.5" x 17". The artist was George Crukshank, the same man who illustrated Dickens' original "A Christmas Carol." Finally, included in this group is a gold on blue celluloid pinback for the Founder's Day of Negro Women's Club - City-County Federation, believed to be in Pittsburgh PA. *
