Rochester, N.Y. (WHEC) — Barbara Blaisdell has been portraying Susan B. Anthony for nearly 30 years.

With this year marking the centennial of women’s suffrage and Susan B. Anthony’s 200th birthday, she’s been a very busy woman.


She sat down with Lynette Adams to share some of her experiences portraying the Rochester historical figure, and how Susan B. Anthony’s work and mission are more relevant today than ever.
