She Unsung: Women in Rochester History In-Person

Last September, Chandra McKenzie and Anne Coon introduced us to She Unsung, their ongoing collaborative research project. Please join us for their return, presenting even more Rochester-connected women whom you may not have heard about. 

The diverse group of women featured in this talk cross several generations. They possessed the ability to foresee opportunities. They made a commitment to others and produced a lasting legacy of influence and leadership in the community. Many enjoyed notoriety far beyond Rochester, and some profoundly altered the way women were perceived, physically and professionally. Too many of these notable women and their contributions have become virtually “unsung.”

Registration is required. Please sign up here: https://hpl.libcal.com/event/10771616

About the presenters: Chandra McKenzie and  Anne Coon are both poets and published writers who retired from academic careers at RIT. In the past, they worked together on volunteer projects for various arts and cultural organizations in the Rochester community. They have been working on this collaboration since early 2020. This engaging presentation will appeal to the intellectually curious, as well as to fans of Rochester history, women’s stories, and popular culture. Come for the company, be part of the talk.
