Women's History Lecture Series Looks at Briggs, Truth, Roosevelt
Greenmead Historical Park is celebrating Women’s History Month with three power lectures focused on women who never gave up nor accepted excuses for the important work they accomplished to make America great. Join Rochelle Danquah at the Alexander Blue House from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, March 2, 16 and 30, for three free lectures. No registration required.
The first lecture of the series starts March 2 with a look at Ann Shaw Briggs. A Livonia pioneer, she migrated to Livonia Township with her family in the 19th century. This lecture will focus on her diary and letters from Greenmead’s archive, giving us a glimpse into her personal and family life in the community.
Make sure to return March 16 to hear about Sojourner Truth and March 30 to discuss Eleanor Roosevelt.
