Join Marble Springs State Historic Site via Zoom and Facebook as we present Professor Nancy Locklin-Sofer of Maryville College with her program "Women's Work and Domestic Culture in Colonial America" on Sunday, March 28th at 4 pm.

Women's work has changed dramatically over the centuries. Women have always worked but this was especially true in the colonies. From cooking innovations to home remedies, to consumer culture, women held an important and impactful role in the colonial social landscape. This lecture aims to explore the experiences of women throughout the various colonies and how they created the foundation of women's work today.

This program is FREE and will be presented via Zoom and on Facebook.

Nancy Locklin-Sofer is a professor of History at Maryville College and a specialist in 18th-century gender and family history.

Funding has been provided by Humanities Tennessee and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.

Asian Culture Center of TN: Persona non Grata film

Category: Film, Free event and History, heritage

Chiune Sugihara man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

Join the Nashville Film Festival and the Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville for a free screening of Persona non Grata, a film celebrating the life of Chiune Sugihara. Before the screening, enjoy in-depth discussion from experts which provides historical and emotional context to the film.
