On August 18, 2020 Belmont University joined the Nashville Public Library and countless other universities, churches and organizations across the city to break this silence by ringing bells 100 times in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.
The events kicked off Belmont’s Debate-related programming for the semester with two other events to follow. In an email to campus, Belmont President Dr. Bob Fisher said, “I can think of no better way to start our fall semester than with such a unifying moment, especially considering that Belmont will be hosting the third and final Presidential Debate just 11 days before Election Day. I hope you will join us in whatever way you can.”
