Who determines when it is the Negro women’s turn to fight for her rights? Dr. Nettie Craig Asberry refused to wait. This feisty, but proper, woman used her voice to fight for women’s rights and for rights for Negroes and was a founding member of the Tacoma NAACP. Whether suffrage or segregation, she stood for what was right! Eva Abram – actor, storyteller and public speaker – will portray Dr. Nettie Asberry through stories of her lifetime of activism.
