Evening Lecture: Route 66 Women: The Untold Story of the Mother Road Screening and Discussion Program
Riordan Mansion State Historic Park
Saturday, May 18, 2019 7-8:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Katrina Parks will show segments from her documentary film series “Route 66 Women” that look in depth at Arizona’s Route 66 legacy through the eyes and experiences of women who overcame segregation and gender discrimination to build fulfilling lives for themselves on America's most beloved road. Themes of growing up, traveling, challenging gender stereotypes, confronting prejudice and pushing boundaries in a man’s world run-through the new oral histories.
Katrina will be joined by a panel of humanities experts including the Cline Library’s archivist Sean Evans and historian and author John Westerlund who will provide historical context for the segments screened and participate in the discussion following the film. Each of these humanities experts brings their expertise in Arizona history and Route 66 to the program.
This event is made possible with support from Arizona Humanities, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Riordan Mansion State Historic Park and Arizona Historical Society. Please visit www.azhumanities.org. Free and open to the public.
