After the first National Women's Rights Convention in 1850 in Worcester, Massachusetts, abolitionist Lucy Stone launched her career as an independent women's rights lecturer. Wearing her Bloomer dress and with her hair bobbed short, Stone organized lecture tours through several southern and western states. She spent four nights in Louisville speaking on women's rights - well advertised by newspaperman George Prentice - every night's events were standing room only. She earned $600 from her lectures in Louisville.After the Civil War, Stone, her husband Henry Blackwell and their daughter Alice Stone Blackwell, all became prominent national suffrage leaders.1853Lucy StonePrince Hall Grand Lodge1304 S. 28th St. Louisville, Ky, 402111304 S. 28th St.38.236556-85.800656https://www.facebook.com/pages/Prince-Hall-Grand-Lodge/116180195076929?rf=436881193189104

It was the first time Louisville hosted a national suffrage event - and the first in the South. Organized by AWSA President Lucy Stone and Mary Barr Clay (who became AWSA president in 1883) at the home of Mary Jane Warfield Clay in Lexington. The convention gathered many who were curious about the suffrage movement, and it also gave birth to Kentucky's first suffrage organization (and the first in the South), the Kentucky Woman Suffrage Association.10/26/1881Lucy Stone, Mary Barr Clay, Susan Look Avery4th Street Live/Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant427-437 S Fourth Street427 S Fourth Street38.251946-85.757064https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaufman-StrausSally G.
