Lecture Series: Women Who Changed America by Marie Papciak

Thursday, March 28


Program:
Women Who Changed America by Marie Papciak

Marie Papciak transforms into two women who changed America and tells their stories in first person. Join us for this HERstory presentation to “meet” Bessie Coleman and Laura Smith Haviland. Bessie Coleman was the first woman pilot of African-American descent and the first of Native American descent. Her pioneering was an inspiration to early pilots and to those in the communities of her heritage. Photo of Laura Smith Haviland

Laura Smith Haviland was an abolitionist, suffragette and temperance worker who lived in Lenawee County in the Michigan Territory. She was part of the community group that organized the first anti-slavery organization in Michigan in 1832. She also opened the first racially integrated school in Michigan. Her home was the first Underground Railroad station in Michigan.
