Hidden Women Series – Bessie Coleman

April 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Pittsfield, MA – The Berkshire County Historical Society at Herman Melville’s Arrowhead is pleased to announce our April offerings. We have three exciting programs throughout the month of April. In addition to these programs, we are offering tours every Saturday, by appointment only. Due to COVID 19 restrictions, tour numbers and times will be limited and masks must be worn at all times. Call 413.442.1793 or email [email protected] to make a reservation.

Presenting the third and final performance of the Spring series with actress Tammy Denease. As Bessie Coleman, Tammy Denease takes you on a virtual journey into the world of the First Negro Aviatrix. You will take an international voyage that begins in the segregated south of the United States, where cotton was king and Jim Crow ruled underneath white sheets, where the color of your skin could determine whether you lived or died. Your journey ends in Paris, France, where self-determination — not skin color or gender — is what truly matters.

For more information about this series and Tammy Denease’s work, visit her website.

Tickets are $20 for members and $25 for not-yet-members. To purchase tickets for this Zoom program, visit our shop at https://berkshire-county-historical-society.square.site/
