“Mr. President, how long must women wait for liberty?”- Inez Milholland
This special musical program, starring Kate Campbell Stevenson, brings to life women from history who worked hard to ensure that all women could enjoy the full rights of US citizenship.
Vignettes featuring portrayals of Abigail Adams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alice Paul and Rose Crabtree (from the 1920 All-Woman Town Council of Jackson Hole, Wyoming) highlight the roles these women played in achieving women’s rights - especially their fight to win the vote.
This program provides excellent examples of active participation for political and social change. A question and answer period follows the performance.
Pilamaya Ye (Thank you in Lakota) is a program of music and legends celebrating Native American philosophy toward the earth and its community. Lou Del Bianco brings children onstage to perform Native American stories and songs about the things we have been given, for "the earth doesn't belong to us, we belong to the earth." Students will leave Pilamaya Ye inspired to follow the paths that the original people lived everyday. This is a Character Ed and environmental program filled with interaction, participation and reflection. Also great for Thanksgiving! Grades K-3 & 3-6
