Although there were laughs as President Trump read from a paper stating he is going to pardon Susan B. Anthony, which seemed to throw Trump into a confused pause as well, it's no laughing matter.

Rochester, NY's own, Susan B. Anthony, was arrested in Rochester in 1872 for violating laws such that only white men could vote while women and Negros could not (Negro and Colored were the terms used to describe Black people in 1872).  Susan B. Anthony was successful in ratifying the 19th Amendment and gave women the right to vote.  The amendment became known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.

This Election Year it's important that you vote, maybe now more than ever with so many things changing in the world and the United States; you want to make sure your voice is heard through your vote.  The 'Right To Vote' should be extremely special and honorable for women, Blacks and minorities in general, as we've come so far since Susan B. Anthony's efforts back in the 1800s.  Thank you, Rochester, NY's Susan B. Anthony.

Be Seen, Be Heard, Vote November 3rd.
