The William G. Pomeroy Foundation joined the NCWHS to add to the digital maker trail by supporting the creation of a physical marker trail to further raise consciousness about the struggle for women's suffrage in America.Dr. Ida Jones, frequent Port Of Harlem contributor and University Archivist at Morgan State University, is the DC State Coordinator. “Some states started earlier, some states have teams, but for DC, I am it,” she says.
Despite the challenges of being a one-woman team, Jones said the national coordinators approved four of the six sites she submitted. The four sites are:
- 128 M Street, NW, site of the old M Street School now Dunbar high school;
- 326 T Street, NW, the Mary Church Terrell home;
- 1601 R Street, NW, the national headquarters of the National Association of Colored Women; and
- 1707 New Hampshire Ave, NW, the national headquarters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.
