Mar 19 - The Wind Beneath Their Wings

March 19 (Tuesday, 7:15 p.m.) The Wind Beneath Their Wings

 

Most people are familiar with the Wright Brothers and their dogged pursuit of flight, but they may not know about Orville and Wilbur's sister. Katharine Wright was born in Dayton, Ohio and attended Oberlin College from 1893-1898. She was the only Wright sibling to pursue a college education and when she joined her brothers' travels in Europe her language skills and diplomacy helped charm their new acquaintances and opened cultural, political, and financial doors. Join us during Women's History Month as actress Stephanie Kramer shares a first-person portrayal of Katharine Wright and discusses her life, family, and courtship through narrative and song.

 

Location: Kendal at Oberlin's Heiser Auditorium
