Founding MothersBlack Hawk College continues its Women’s History Month offerings with a discussion of the book “Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation” by Cokie Roberts at noon Tuesday, March 25 in Building 1, Room 306 (theatre).

“The wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers of the Founding Fathers managed property, and raised their children and often those of deceased relatives, while trying to make their own contributions to the cause of liberty. They acted as spies, coordinated boycotts, and raised funds for the army. Through it all, they corresponded with their husbands, friends, and even like-minded women in England.”

Charlet Key, professor and library director at the Quad-Cities Campus, will host the discussion.

This event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Look for more presentations by faculty members throughout March.
