From the time she was just a girl, Florence D’Angelo’s dream was to be an actress.
She would have been 14 in 1913.
A young girl in Hollywood, she had her eyes on the big leagues, but a family tragedy changed her life.
In 1915, she was the only girl in a group of three girls that the young actress and her mother attended as they attended a party in Manhattan.
There were six girls in the party, and she was one of them.
Florence D, the eldest of three sisters, and her cousin, Sylvia, were the only girls who could afford the tickets.
As the girls were going to the party in New York City, Florence decided that she would take her sisters to New Orleans and try to make it.
It was a chance to be the first black woman to appear on the covers of Hollywood magazine.
Florence was 14 years old when she decided to take her sister Sylvia to New York.
It would be the biggest decision of her life, but it was a moment that changed her career forever.
She became the first woman to become an actress, a role she played on the stage and in film.
When the news of the suffrage vote was announced in New Orleans, D’Artagnan, who was born and raised in Louisiana, was one person in a small group of people who voted to become the first people in the country to vote for women to run for office.
The vote in New Jersey was a different story.
It wasn’t the first time that women had voted for the right to vote, but D’Armagnan says the feeling was different.
It felt like, ‘It’s the first one.’
She remembers feeling a sense of power.
She felt like she was leading the way, and then the women in her family began to question that.
She says it was the first election where people questioned, ‘Is this a democracy?’.
The decision came at a time when many African Americans in America felt disenfranchised.
They felt they were underrepresented in American society, and they felt that they were not represented in politics or in leadership positions.
D’Antonio says the idea that women would be able to run their own country, to decide on the issues of their choosing, and have a say in the future of the country, was a very powerful idea for African Americans.
‘It was a really strong idea, and it really put African Americans on the map,’ she says.
The decision was not a political one.
Dalia D’Andrea, who is a former member of the Louisiana legislature and a member of D’ Artagnan’s family, says the decision to hold the vote was a political statement.
She said the suffragettes had a vision that was different from the idea of women voting in a country where women had been treated in the same way as men for so long.
‘I think that the vote did not have anything to do with the war or with the abolitionist movement, but I think that it did have a lot to do that it put the women on the front line of what they wanted and what they thought,’ she said.
Della, the oldest of Dartagnans five sisters, remembers that the decision was also an important moment for the family.
She was very happy for the first few weeks after the vote, because she knew that this was a big step, that this would be her country and she wanted to live in a more progressive society, she says in her book, The Suffragette.
Dara D’Anastasio is the founder and executive director of the African American Leadership Council, an advocacy organization for African American women.
She believes that the suffraga vote was the culmination of a lot of work and a lot that the women of the D Artagnans generation of women in Louisiana did for the state.
She points out that D’Aranda was the youngest of D Artagagnans children and that she was a leader for the African Americans of Louisiana.
‘We had been saying for a long time that we were going in the right direction,’ she recalls.
‘But this was really a turning point.
This was a turning moment, and for all of us, we were all really proud of the fact that this is our country.
‘The women were there and we were able to take that leap.
We were able, because we had so much support from the people of Louisiana, to really do something really radical.’
The decision of the women to vote was not just about politics, she believes.
The move has become a rallying point for the Black women of Louisiana who feel their community is not represented.
She remembers a young lady who was the president of the NAACP.
The NAACP was the largest civil rights organization in the state and was a real catalyst for the women’s movement.
