History à la Carte: I Served, Too: Fame and Humility
topics—come learn about the Lost Colony, the Bill of Rights, World War I, North Carolina pottery, and famous (and infamous) North Carolinians, just to name a few! Our speakers run the gambit, they are often business owners, nonprofit directors, authors, museum curators, or professors, and provide exciting perspectives to their talk. Join us in the Longleaf Classroom (North Carolina Museum of History) at noon every second Wednesday of the month.
Bring your lunch (or purchase a boxed lunch under "Get Tickets"); we've got the drinks!
Bennis M. Blue, PhD, Veteran, US Army
In 1978 Blue, a Raleigh native, was the first female member of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg. She will share some of her experiences—including her historic first parachute jump with the 82nd—and offer insights for women who might be considering a career in the military.
If I bring a lunch, will I have a place to eat? Yes! We have tables set up for you to eat comfortably.
