I've Heard of Her: Sara Hale and Pocahontas

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Bring a lunch and join Museum staff in a discussion of the remarkable and often unknown parts of the lives and roles of women in history. You might know their names but not all the details. Explore the good, the bad, and the in between. Sarah Hale was a writer, editor, and the mother of Thanksgiving, who petitioned several presidents for federal recognition of the holiday. Pocahontas was a Powhatan American Indian in what later became known as Virginia, and is one of the most misrepresented woman in history thanks to her depiction in animated film.
