Documentary Based on Research of A&M-Commerce Professor to Air in Dallas

Citizens At Last,” a documentary based on research and publications by Dr. Jessica Brannon-Wranosky, distinguished professor of digital humanities and history at Texas A&M University-Commerce, has been making its worldwide debut on PBS stations around the globe. The program will air on KERA channel 13 out of Dallas on August 30 at 8 p.m. Co-produced by Nancy Schiesari and Ellen Temple, the film tells the story of women in Texas and their fight for the vote leading up to the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920. Dr. Wranosky has researched the history of women’s suffrage for almost two decades and has a book coming out in the near future on the subject. Most recently she has also served as the founding project director of the Handbook of Texas Women, a special project of the Texas State Historical Association. For those not in the Dallas viewing area, check your local PBS station times for the documentary or log on and stream the video or watch the extended cut from the documentary’s website at the film’s website.
