Speakeasy – Women of the 1920’s

Talks/Lectures
Sip a Prohibition cocktail and sample light, 1920s style hors d’oeuvres as we hear about three 1920’s American women who altered the history of their professions. Zora Neale Hurston was a writer during the Harlem Renaissance, a folklorist and an anthropologist who is best known for her contributions to African American literature. Georgia O’Keefe is recognized as the Mother of American Modernism and her paintings of enlarged flowers and New York skyscrapers in the 1920’s contributed to her position as an American legend. Florence Sabin was a pioneer for women in science and was the first woman to graduate from Johns Hopkins Medical School in 1900. She was an immunologist, scientist, biologist and, in her retirement, a public health activist. We’ll focus on their impact in the 1920’s.
