This year we are celebrating the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920 that gave women the right to vote. We will hear songs from that period that express women’s resolve, and in some cases, men’s anxiety about this dramatic change to society. We will also hear storyteller Pippa White tell the inspiring story of the women who fought for so long to make it a reality.
This season our annual event also spotlights Civic Nebraska, an organization that believes that we’re all connected, and it takes all of us to build and sustain a modern, robust democracy. Civic Nebraska lifts up Nebraskans on our streets, in our schools, and within our democratic institutions through afterschool programs for students, civic health programs, as well as working to make elections fair, modern and accessible.
Special guest Pippa White calls her One’s Company Productions “part theatre, part storytelling, part history.” Audiences call them unique, captivating, and touching. To date she has crisscrossed the country many times as a professional storyteller, touring to over 30 states, performing at universities and colleges, conferences, performing arts centers, museums, libraries, and festivals.
This is a free event! For further information contact First Presbyterian Church at (402) 477-6037, or go to the church website at: http://fpclincoln.org/ and click on Arts for the Soul.
