Description

The Belmont University community celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the vote to ratify the 19th Amendment to the constitution while listening to bell Tower ring 100 times at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, August 18, 2020.

Tennessee was the needed 36th state to ratify the amendment. To celebrate, cities across the country rang bells in celebration, but Nashville did not. On the centennial, all of Nashville rang bells across the city.
