Influential Women of the 1800s
Please note, this event has expired.
In a collaboration of free programs with the Historic Palace Theatre, The History Center presents a portrayal of two important women, Belva Lockwood and Eliza Mossell, who took on both political and societal injustices in order to change the world.
The History Center’s own “Step Back in Time Players” will guide us on a narrative journey through the life and times of two very significant figures during the 19th century. Marsha Zimmer will portray Belva Lockwood. She was an author, lawyer, and politician; gaining entry as the first woman admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court. Her work is particularly important to several social reforms during that time, including equal pay for working women.
Brenda Reaves will play Eliza Mossell,View more
