Historical Re-enactment: “Meet Amelia Earhart: First Lady of the Air”
September 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15.00
Historic re-enactor, Jessa Piaia, will present a one-person interpretation of pioneer aviatrix Amelia Earhart entitled “Meet Amelia Earhart (1897-1937): First Lady of the Air” at (place, address) on (day, date, time). The program is set in 1936, when Earhart was a popular speaker on the national circuit and preparing for take-off for the around-the-world flight in 1937. Inspired at an early age by the suffragist movement, Earhart identified with the generation of “the new woman” who had won the right to vote in 1920. Acclaimed as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932, she was previously part of the 1928 “Friendship” flight departing from East Boston Harbor on its historic trans-Atlantic flight. At the time of the “Friendship” flight, Amelia was living in Medford, while working as a social worker at the Denison House in downtown Boston, and helping to design an airplane hangar at the Denison Airfield in Squantum, MA. She also served as a role model while pursuing activities that ranged from being a guidance counselor at Purdue University, an aviation writer and author of three books, to designing luggage and a line of clothes for “women who live actively.” Sponsored by (name of group), the program runs approximately 45 minutes in length with an informal Q&A to follow. A collection of photographs, news clippings, and articles written by and about Amelia Earhart will be available for audience examination before and after the performance.
