Art Thursday - Giving Voice - Bradwell and Hayes
Thursday, February 18, 2021, 3:30 PM
Myra Bradwell and Roland Hayes lived in two separate worlds in two different centuries, but what they accomplished individually helped to define American culture and society to this day. Bradwell was married to a lawyer in Chicago and went to the U.S. Supreme Court to affirm her qualification to practice law and published an influential legal journal. Hayes was born in Georgia, the son of a formerly enslaved mother, who raised his voice in song and deed to promote racial equality and appreciation of music. They followed different paths over their lifetimes and both ultimately gave voice to those who had not previously been heard or recognized. A Villager, longtime docent and history maven, Lorna Grenadier will share their remarkable and inspiring stories with some surprises along the way.
