April Young Bennett – A Voice Lesson from a Suffragist

Aired Thursday, 6 June 2019, 9:00 AM EST / 6:00 AM PST

Five score years ago on June 4th, 1919 the US Congress passed the 19th amendment guaranteeing the first wave of American women the right to vote. In honor of the giants whose shoulders we stand upon we dedicate this week’s episode to the female movers and shakers who have changed the game by raising the power of female voices.

Join voice master Kara Johnstad and our honorable guest, April Young Bennett, as they tune us with the echoes of our foremothers.
