Post Date:03/05/2019 8:30 AM
March is Women’s History Month, and the Greensboro History Museum is celebrating women who have helped shape the city. Costumed interpreters portraying historic Greensboro women will be on hand from 1-4 pm, Saturday, March 9 at the Greensboro History Museum, 130 Summit Ave.

Interpreters bring history to life by sharing Greensboro stories in first person. Women portrayed in the museum galleries include Josephine Boyd, the first African American student at Greensboro Senior High School; Nancy Mangum, who wrote to the governor about food shortages during the Civil War; and Frances Jones Bonner, a Bennett College basketball player who helped organize a movie theater boycott in the city in 1937; among other important Greensboro women from across the decades. The program is free of charge and great for all ages.
