Every Thursday night is Late Night at The Wright! Stop by for an after-work or after-school visit until 7 PM.

Voting Matters

The Struggle for Voting Rights


Voting Matters is an interactive multimedia exhibition that illustrates the work of African Americans from pre-Reconstruction through the present day, in the development of the basic principles and values surrounding our current understanding of what it means to have the “right to vote” in democratic societies around the world.

Sponsored by Bank of America, this modular exhibition features details on The Women’s Suffrage Movement in our Chase Gallery.



Experience firsthand accounts of triumphs and tragedies endured by African Americans on the journey to the right to vote.


This exhibition features paintings, photographs, memorabilia, documents, and more.
