Nashville Public Library Celebrates 19th Amendment Anniversary

MusicRow Magazine staffers celebrate “Ring the Bell” campaign.

Metro Nashville City Council passed a resolution to encourage the “Ringing of the Bells” on Aug. 18, 2020, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which allowed women the right to vote. On Aug. 18, 1920, Tennessee passed the ratification resolution, becoming the 36th state to vote in favor of the ratification. With Tennessee’s ratification, the 19th Amendment became law, ensuring that the right to vote could not be denied based on gender.

To celebrate, cities across the country rang bells in celebration, but Nashville did not.

Nashville aims to correct that through the Nashville Public Library’s “Ring the Bell” campaign, which asks individuals to take a video of themselves ringing a bell for various causes. On Aug. 18 at 11:30 a.m. CT, individuals across Nashville will celebrate by ringing bells. The Nashville Public Library will also celebrate with an event that will be broadcast on the library’s YouTube channel.

Participates in ringing the bell are encouraged to tag Nashville Public Library (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) and use #IRingTheBell.
