Women's History Month 2023: Daisy Elizabeth Adams Lampkin

Daisy Elizabeth Adams Lampkin was a pioneering African American suffragist and civil rights leader who played a key role in the fight for women's suffrage in the United States. Born in 1883 in Mississippi, Lampkin became involved in the suffrage movement in the early 20th century.

Lampkin was a founding member of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) and worked closely with other suffrage leaders such as Mary McLeod Bethune and Ida B. Wells. She served as president of the NACW from 1930 to 1935, and later became the first woman to serve on the national board of the NAACP.

Lampkin's advocacy for women's suffrage was rooted in her belief that all people, regardless of race or gender, deserved equal rights and opportunities. She worked tirelessly to secure the right to vote for women of color, and her efforts helped pave the way for the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Lampkin's legacy as a suffrage and civil rights leader continues to inspire activists and advocates for social justice today. Her unwavering commitment to justice and equality for all serves as a reminder of the power of collective action and the importance of fighting for what is right.
