Event description

Description

The African American Museum of Bucks County is launching a 4-part Speakers Series, extraordinary presentations each revealing American and local history, up-close and personal. The museum is tapping local talent with unique personal and professional perspectives of history to enlarge and enrich your understanding of history.

On March 9, in part 3 of the Series, Shirley Lee Corsey presents Women History Makers of Bucks County and Beyond.

Shirley is a 3rd generation family member from Yardley, Bucks County. She is a self-described "historian from the heart" whose mission includes sharing her knowledge and discovery of hidden figures, places and facts not known by the general public and/or buried in the historical archives of Bucks County. This presentation will highlight the often overlooked contributions that women have been making in our community over the past 2+ centuries to current time. Shirley invites you to “Her-story” and encourages you to bring a photo of a remarkable woman who has touched your life. Be part of this fun, informative opportunity to share your “hidden figures” of Bucks County and beyond as well!

The event is held at the Bucks County Visitors Center. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Event includes historic exhibit, presentation and refreshments.

The final event is an arts celebratio--a jazz concert set in historical context. Don't miss the lively finale of this Speakers Series:

o April 13th, 2019: Josh Lee and the Family: African American Arts Finale: Jazz and the Great Migration.
