Maryland General Assembly Will Hold Joint Session TOMORROW
In Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the
Women’s Suffrage March of 1913 from New York to Washington, D.C.
(ANNAPOLIS - February 21, 2013) - TOMORROW, Friday, February 22, 2013, at 11 a.m. the Maryland General Assembly will hold a joint session in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage March from New York to Washington, D.C.
Spearheaded by the 56-female Women’s Caucus, female members of both the Senate and House will assemble in the rotunda at 10:45 a.m. where they will prepare to march together into the Joint Session to be held in the House Chambers.
The celebration will begin with Delegate Melony G. Griffith singing the Star Spangled Banner. The activities will conclude with the women participating in an oral rendition of the march from New York to Washington, D.C. and will include a special focus on the march through Maryland.
Not since 1997, has a joint session of the Maryland General Assembly been held to celebrate the Women Legislators of Maryland. The 1997 joint session paid tribute to the 25th year of the founding of the Women’s Caucus.
“We expect this to be a very moving event. Collecting all the data and trying to put together a program that is inclusive of all 56 members of our Maryland General Assembly was quite challenging, but exciting. I look forward to seeing it all come together,” said Senator Catherine Pugh, chair of the Women’s Caucus.

As a pop culture curator, Kevin produced the first exhibit on the history of hip-hop in America at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, which toured America and overseas. As a humanitarian, Kevin's work includes local, national and international initiatives to end violence against women and girls (including a very well-regarded appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show highlighting domestic violence); and he has done extensive philanthropic and relief work, ranging from Hurricane Katrina to earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, to Superstorm Sandy in New York, to his annual holiday party and clothing drive for the homeless every December since 9/11.
As an acknowledgement of Kevin's life of public service and his dedication to literature and the arts, Cornell University recently became the owner of The Kevin Powell Collection, documenting nearly 30 years of his work to date in print, photos, videos, books, handwritten notes, speeches, and select memorabilia.
