Extending America’s Promise: Pioneering Women with Cokie Roberts

Thu., July 19, 7 p.m.

Presented in collaboration with the Society of the Sacred Heart. As the new country of the United States was taking shape, women did much of the molding. Religious women in particular, like Rose Philippine Duchesne, who arrived in St. Charles, Missouri, from France in 1818, took on the task of extending America’s promise to all of its people – including women, Native Americans, African Americans, and the impoverished. Join journalist and author Cokie Roberts, alumna of Sacred Heart schools in New Orleans and Bethesda, Maryland, as she tells the delightful stories of these pioneering women whose work lives on today.
